The Great Blasket Centre on the mainland in Dún Chaoin, on the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, is an interpretative centre/museum detailing the unique community who once lived on the Great Blasket Island. The centre details their lives as subsistence fishermen and farmers, their traditional way of life and also the extraordinary amount of literature which the islanders produced.

The centre also includes displays on the flora and fauna of the islands and surrounding sea. The building overlooks the panorama of the Great Blasket and its family of surrounding islands. The Great Blasket Centre is the perfect stop at the halfway point of the Slea Head Drive.
