The Workhouse Famine and Heritage Centre is a restored workhouse building with famine exhibition. It is run as a community educational resource, exhibition space and craft training centre, in Dunfanaghy County Donegal.

The Workhouse Famine and Heritage Centre is on the outskirts of Dunfanaghy in County Donegal overlooking Sheephaven Bay and within easy walking distance of Horn Head and the fabulous Tramore Beach.

Hear and see the true story of wee Hannah, a child of the famine and typical inmate. Visit our exhibition on the new lake and the ecology of this unique area.

They run a schools programme, adult craft courses and weekend workshops as well as heritage events and walks. The coffee shop serves home made lunches and snacks.
