Experience life on the farm at Irish Famine Cottages, a cottage built using stone and mud in the 19th century. Discover how people ate, how animals were kept, and how inhabitants told time during this somber period. Just behind the cottage, look for a large beehive hut believed to have lasted 800 years. Today the cottages are used for working sheepdog performances, and you can watch these sheep-farmers and their dogs herding livestock.

Irish Famine Cottages Reviews
It was lambing season and we got to see some baby lambs. The cottage was cool and eerie. I found a lamb carcass around the back that just made it even more eerie.
Nice memorial, very touching with details from the great famine in Ireland. Very informative and feels very real.
