This wonderful amenity offers a large selection of life size attractions portraying life in Ireland from the 1840s until the present day. The centre is built around and includes original thatched dwellings which were still inhabited up until 1983 by the owners family and your tour guide, Pat Doherty. Some of the Famine Village’s buildings – such as the Orange Hall, Presbyterian Meeting House, Mass Rock and Hedge School and a Republican Safe House – depict the diverse history and culture of this corner of the Inishowen peninsula. Other buildings house information on the travelling community’s culture and other Irish traditions such as food, cures and the “Irish Wake”, a traditional send-off for the dead. Doagh Famine Village is designed to suit Irish weather and is predominantly under cover.

The Inishowen Peninsula

For bird lovers the Trawbreaga Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is right on your doorstep with its selection of southward migrating birds such as Garney and Shearwater.  For the enthusiastic walker the countryside around the holiday home is a landscape of purple heather, small patchwork fields, streams and glens – ideal rambling terrain.  The cottage  also lies along the route of the famous Inishowen 100, one of Ireland's most scenic drives.

With a beautiful setting on the steep hills overlooking the wide sweep of the River Foyle, Derry’s distinctive architecture and its famous walls provide enormous appeal. The Tower Museum is well worth a visit. The Greencastle to Magilligan Ferry makes  the northern coast of Northern Ireland  easily accessible from the cottage. The Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and Dunluce Castle are just some of the top attractions in this area.

What they say

We had a lovely stay at Diarmuid's place at the end of Ireland ! Ballyliffin is only 15 minutes away driving from Malin Head where you can enjoy the sunning view over the ocean. The house was very cosy and we particularly enjoyed its quietness. I definitely recommend staying at the Diarmuid's house. Bonus : Diarmuid welcomed us with a pack of Guiness and local food which is always a good surprise!
