We really wanted to visit this center describing the life of St. Comcille, but in mid September, it was closed for the season. We did take some photos of the changing colors on the road into the center which we enjoyed.

Quite hard to find this place but is worth it. The views of the loch and surrounding areas are beautiful. Take your time, relax and watch the film. Feel yourself transported back in time. Follow your visit by going to birthplace of st colmcille

A historical place on the way to Glennveagh. On the cemetery only People from the area are burried. The cemetery is located beautifully above two lakes and I guess is a good final place.

On a beautiful sunny afternoon we visited the folk village. We enjoyed walking around the old (reproduction?) houses, viewing the contents and reminiscing as we examined the contents. It was most interesting to learn of the great efforts of Fr Dyer to rejuvenate the area....More

This was one of the highlights of our visit to County Donegal. Our guide was extremely informative and we learned such a lot about Irish history as well as about the life of Colmkille.
