Doagh Famine Village - Review

The Doagh Famine village has a history of a Donegal Family and community living on the edge of Donegal to survive from the famine times in Ireland right up to the present day.

The rustic village is elegantly planned to forms a marvellous spectacle which is only intensified by its epic stories. The village plays an important role in the road to peace in Northern Ireland, its ‘Celtic Tiger’ years and the recent economic collapse- thus representing the situations in Ireland over a long period of time.

The whole centre has been built around the owner who lived here with his family up until 1983!

Highlights Include:

  • Life-size attractions which include original dwellings which were inhabited till about 20 years ago.
  • The seasonal themes here of Halloween are a treat for every visitor.

The centre is maintained keeping the present times in mind. There are changing rooms available for family with infants and the whole centre is covered to prevent environmental-hassles.

A must-see for every history-lover, this place comes to life with the amazing guided tours that are filled with beautiful stories that give you a peek in the lost times.

Doagh Famine Village, Donegal Reviews

  • Thanks for a brilliant day. Although a regular visitor I find each time different and on this visit I brought my Mum and my 2 Aussie relatives who loved the village. Keep up the great work.

  • Really interesting place to visit. Very educational from the Guides to the 'pearls of wisdom' displayed on the walls. Very enjoyable tea and cream scone in the café, included in the entrance fee. Lovely little gift shop. Enjoyed our visit very much.

  • Great day out, very insightful, great people!! Lots to see and learn. Loved the coffee and scone with the views at the end. Would highly recommend this place.

  • This journey through the past in the Donegal offers you the opportunity to understand the great famine in Ireland and what was the cost for Irish people (guided or self-guided). Tea and scones are included in the price and you are also given the opportunity to taste the famous or infamous poitin, the traditional alcohol from Ireland (only in guided tour though). Self-guided book is provided and the French version is of excellent quality.

  • Lovely, quirky place. Gives you an insight into how people used to live and some of the Irish history and how it repeats today.
