DOAGH FAMINE VILLIAGE

A JOURNEY WORTH TAKING!

Doagh Famine Village tells the story of a Donegal family and community living on the edge of Donegal and surviving from Famine times right up to the present day. A visit here also helps explain the road to peace in Northern Ireland, Ireland in the Celtic Tiger years and the 2008 economic collapse. Doagh Famine Village contains a wide selection of actual size attractions, including some original dwellings which were still inhabited up to 20 years ago. In fact, the center has been built around the home of the owner who lived here with his family until 1983. Some of the Famine Village’s buildings such as the Orange Hall, Presbyterian Meeting House, Mass Rock and Hedge School and a Republican Safe House depict the diverse history and culture of this corner of the Inishowen peninsula.

Doagh Famine Village is visited by thousands of visitors from all walks of life, all ages and from all across the world every year. There are a number of tour guide books available in a number of different languages for those visiting from the most frequent countries that visitors come from. Whether visiting on your own, with friends or family, as part of a large group or with a coach party the experience at Doagh Famine Village is equally enjoyable and well worth the journey. With regular tours throughout the day, 7 days a week and predominantly undercover it is an ideal place to visit any time and regardless of the weather.

The new purpose-built visitors center has some splendid views out across the bay to Malin, the Five Finger Strand and out across the Atlantic Ocean at the end of the Wild Atlantic Way. The visitors centre has ample facilities with toilets and baby changing areas and houses a cafe where you can grab a bite to eat or quick refreshments before or after your visit.
