We head to the top of the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal for a tour around a unique Irish cottage.
If you travel to the top of the Wild Atlantic Way – towards the most northerly point on the island of Ireland, you will eventually come to the beautiful Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal – north of the City of Derry. We were driving around the peninsula when we came across an interested sign for a “Famine Village”. It turned out to be a fully built replica of a village – with lots of exhibits and more to keep you educated and entertained.
When we eventually caught up with the owner of the village – Pat Doherty – he had a special treat for us. He took us inside one of the cottages, but it was the ACTUAL cottage that he was born and reared in. He had plenty to say on the matter in this video:
- You can see more on the Doagh Famine Village here.
- You can see more on Derry City as part of our County Donegal and Derry City Homelands feature here.

Slán for now, Mike & Carina.
