The Famine Village

The Famine Village

Doagh Famine Village tells the story of Irish life from the Great Famine of the 1840s through until the present day.

Our tour guides will take you on a journey showing how families and communities have lived on the edge generation after generation, adapting  and surviving as the environment and society around the local area changed over the years.

A combination of informative story telling and life size exhibits provides an informative, thought-provoking and at time humorous look at Irish life.

Attractions include original thatched Irish cottages (inhabited as recently as the 1980s), an Eviction Scene, Orange Hall, Republican Safe House and Irish Wake House amongst others.
