The museum is in the old 1875 schoolhouse in Ballyferriter  8 miles west of  Dingle.  We are on the Wild Atlantic Way, and the Slea Head Route, both spectacular driving routes. We are in a Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking area), so you will see expressions in Irish used on our web site. Corca Dhuibhne is the name of the tribe that lived in much of the southern part of the Dingle peninsula in Early Medieval times, and their name means 'the seeds (or descendants) of Dovinia'. It was then used for the administrative division of the Barony.

We also use the original, Irish forms of the place names in the area, although some maps use an English version, we hope you won't be confused.

Opening times

The museum is usually open 7 days a week from 10 to 5 during the summer. We also open during the Easter holiday season. To arrange to visit outside of this time, please contact us. 

 

We'd love to hear from you!
