Slieve League and Glencolmcille Village

Our guests are able to enjoy the view from the top of the cliffs, or from a boat as it cruises around the cliffs towering above. The location is thought to have been a place of pilgrimage even before the arrival of Christianity, and there is a wealth of evidence of the ice age and the effects of glaciers. In the area, we also find megalithic monuments and the are from here to Glencolmcille folk village is said to be the largest area in Ireland with such close ties to five saints, one of whom was Colmcille himself.





The Glencolmcille folk village (aptly named after one of the 3 patron saints of Ireland), established as a Folk Village Museum at the initiative of Fr James McDyer in the 1950’s along with the locals in the area. With cottages built and furnished as replicas of home living in the 17th, 18th and 19th century in rural Ireland, and a school house, public house and grocery store as well, this village provides tourists with a fascinating and in depth look at how the Irish lived for centuries.
