Glencolmcille Folk Village
Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal
The Glencolmcille Folk Village Museum recreates Donegal's historic cottage dwellings, spanning over 300 years, in Glencolmcille, County Donegal.

The Glencolmcille Folk Village Museum, in Glencolmcille County Donegal, is a cluster of six small cottages, called a "clachán," perched on a hillside overlooking a sandy curve of nearby Glenbay beach. Each cottage recreates a different era of Irish history, from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.

The tea house provides a variety of home made foods, which are second to none. We pride ourselves on the fact that all foods are made daily in our very own bakery to ensure freshness.

The craft shop is ideal when shopping for those special gifts to bring back home. We stock a large selection of Irish made products and a high percentage of local arts and crafts.

For opening times, admission prices, facilities, please see our website.
