Dan O’Hara’s Homestead / Connemara Heritage & History CentreClifden Galway - Ireland West
This award-winning heritage centre offers a unique insight into the history and heritage of Connemara. A visit of an hour, afternoon or overnight stay will provide special memories. Dan O'Hara's story illustrates the life of a typical 19th-century Connemara tenant farmer. The multi-lingual audio-visual and history presentation tells both of Dan O'Hara's tale from his eviction to subsequent emigration to New York and also the history of Connemara down through the ages, from pre-historic to present times. Other features of the heritage centre include reconstructions of a crannóg (pre-historic lake dwelling), ring fort and clochaun (early Christian Oratory). From the hilltop above the farm, there is a spectacular view of the Roundstone Bog as it stretches towards the Atlantic. An old-style carriage takes visitors on a guided tour through the Centre by prior appointment. This lively, entertaining tour can include turf cutting demonstrations, sheep herding and other activities on request. Facilities at the newly refurbished centre include a large craft shop and restaurant. Free carpark available with ample room for coaches.
