This cottage isn’t a replica; it’s a real dwelling, maintained as it would have been at the time it was abandoned during the Great Famine years of the mid-19th century. The humble stone building, scattered with pieces of furniture, is a stark and haunting sight, perched on a windswept cliff overlooking the coast. Sheep and horses graze nearby, adding to the feeling of wildness and isolation. You can’t go inside, but looking in through the windows gives a powerful enough impression of what life was really like for the rural poor. Kids get a little bowl of feed to give to the animals in the field. Note: The cottage is a short walk uphill from the parking lot, so it may not be suitable for those with mobility problems.
