Doagh Famine Village is one of Ireland’s most unique and popular tourist attractions, visited by thousands of people from all over the world every year.

Our guided tours will take you on a journey through life in Ireland in our local community, showing you how families learned to survive and adapt as society evolved from the Great Famine in the 1840s to the present day.

A combination of informative story telling and life size exhibits provides an informative, thought-provoking and at time humorous look at Irish life.

A great way to spend time when you are visiting Donegal!

Visitor Experiences

  We had a wonderful tour guide. Very realistic and brings one back to a different time and place. Truly felt authentic. So happy we incorporated this stop on our itinerary! Tasting Irish potato whiskey was a bonus!

   Such an interesting tour! I had a phenomenal time with my boyfriend and his mum. With our tickets we got a free ticket for a drink and cake which is a lovely touch. You can have that before or after your tour and enjoy the views!

 Amazing beautiful place. The tour is so informative and Irish humour alongside the serious parts make your visit so enjoyable. The scenery is breathtaking…it’s heaven on earth!
Nanny Jo

   A beautiful place! The tour guide for our group actually lived in one of the homes here! It was really interesting, feels like almost all of Ireland’s recent history of the past 100-300 years is on display.
