West Ireland | County Clare

Craggaunowen is an open air museum located in forest park, 6 km east from Quin (Co Clare), just off road R469 (20 km northwest from Limerick City). This living past experience project was established in 1960's by John Hunt, important historian, antiquarian, and collector (his collections are on display in Hunt Museum in Limerick). The reconstructions, including a crannog, a ring fort, a souterrain, a fulachta fia (Bronze Age cooking site), a dolmen and Ogham Stone are situated in natural woodlands and wetlands, what makes this journey through the Ireland's ancient past more realistic and interesting. You can also meet some unique animals like wild boar or soay sheep. Craggaunowen has original 16th century Tower House on its grounds, and also has one more very important attraction, "Brendan Boat". This leather-hulled Currach was made in 1970's, by Tim Severin, modern times explorer who together with his crew have made transatlantic journey in this boat, to prove that the St Brendan the Navigator could have made the same in 6th century and could be the first who discovered America. Craggaunowen is a great fun for all ages.
