Pocket Guide: Connemara Dan O'Hara's Connemara Heritage and History Centre Hotels

Explore the award-winning Connemara Heritage and History Centre for a look at the old roots of Ireland. Originally a simple country farm run by the Walsh family, in the 1990s they realised that the harsh Connemara landscape didn’t lend itself to intensive farming and diversified into agritourism.

The Man, Dan O'Hara

The farm is named after Dan O’Hara, a legendary figure who was once famous in the songs and stories of the region. A ruined cottage on the farm was allegedly once owned by O’Hara, who farmed eight acres of land until destitution forced him to emigrate to New York. The ruined cottage of Dan O’Hara has now been restored to its original state, and visitors have a chance to explore what life would have been like in a 19th Century rural Irish home.

Tours

The farm offers guided tours that explain and illustrate the cultural history of rural Irish life. Watch and take a part in demonstrations on topics as diverse as turf cutting, sheep herding and soda bread making on the open fire.

There’s also a gallery of historical artifacts with relevant information. And for visitors who wish to learn more the farm has produced an audiovisual presentation on Connemara through history which can be viewed at the centre. Connemara Visitor Centre also features reconstructions of a crannóg, a ring fort and a clochaun, for a close-up taste of Irish history.

If you’re making a day of your trip to the Connemara Heritage and History Centre, and there’s easily enough material to do so, you won’t have to worry about going hungry either. The centre features an excellent café, where coffees, traditional light snacks such as toasted scones, and full lunches can be purchased.

The centre is situated less than four miles from the coastal town of Clifden and is easily accessible by car along the N56. The farm is open for visitors through the tourist season, from late spring into early autumn, although requests for visits out of open season can be made in advance.
