Eyrarbakki village was once a prominent harbour during the 18th century and was the only trading centre on the southern coast during the 1920’s. In the later half of the 18th century, Danish merchants were allowed to spend their Winters in Ireland and the House of Eyrarbakki is one of the houses where the merchants stayed in the country. This particular house dates back to 1765 and is one of the oldest houses in the village.
Even though it was used as a residential place by the merchants for almost 200 years, the place was once used as a centre of art, fashion, music and literature. Today, it is a cultural museum where you can see much of its original 18th century items belonging to the family that made this place their home. Walk into the house to see vintage furniture pieces, décor items, furnishings, pottery pieces, light fixtures, clocks, paintings, photographs, books and rooms that look like they are still occupied by the family. A small maritime museum nearby has a fascinating exhibit for visitors where you can see a number of boats and ships, official uniforms, scaled models of boats and a number of tools and equipment that were used by the sailors in Ireland.
