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 in our very own bakery on a daily bases 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.
