The Doagh Famine Village is a cultural museum that will take you on a walk through a fully reconstructed village. It will introduce you to the different Irish ways of life through the centuries…
You will start with the inevitable episode of the Great Famine, when more than 25% of the Irish population was decimated by hunger. You will discover the main dates of this sad era, the causes of this famine, as well as the latent conflict between the British and the Irish.
Then came the land reform, the War of Independence and the Civil War of 1910-1920.
The museum is very well documented, using explanatory panels and life-size reconstructions. The visit is fun and interesting, even if the museum is more oriented for adults.
