Best indoor attraction in Killybegs. Ideal for a rainy day. Guide was friendly and excellent knowledge of the subject. Knew the answers of every question asked. Would visit again.

We weren't here for long because our coach didn't stop long in Killybegs but so much to see in this museum. Staff extremely friendly and so knowledgeable. Very informative video. Lots to see in the carpet factory. Lots of information on the local fishing industry.

We visited here and found the carpet making process interesting. We were shown how the carpets were made and told the history of the carpet factory.

on a recent trip through Ireland I visited Malin Head. it is the most northerly point in Ireland. The scenery is wonderful and it also had a lot to do with the air force in the war. I would recommend a visit.
