Muckross House and Gardens are among the most popular of Irish visitor attractions.
Take a stroll down memory lane to visit Ireland in the 1930s and 1940s. This was a period before the widespread use of electricity, when all work was carried out using traditional methods.
You will visit three separate working farms (small , medium and large), each complete with animals, poultry and horse drawn farm machinery.
You will also visit a labourer’s cottage, a carpenter’s workshop, a harness maker and a blacksmith’s forge.
The interiors of the dwelling houses are furnished in the traditional manner, and include such items as the dresser, settlebed and mealbin.
