"An Experience of the life in the Past. "

The Folk Village Museum is an unusual tourist attraction that offers an incredible experience of the mood of 1700’s, 1800's and 1900’s. The six thatched cottages are exact imitations of those of the yesteryear and are adorned with furnishings of that era. The tour of the museum is an astounding experience.

Gleann Cholm Cille is a coastal district in the southwest Gaeltacht of County Donegal, Ireland. It is also a civil parish in the historic barony of Banagh.

While Gleann Cholm Cille is still an Irish-speaking community, English has been steadily replacing Irish as the main language, with only 34% of the people speaking Irish on a daily basis in 2002. Cashel is the main village in the district.

The name translates into English as "valley of Colm Cille". Saint Colm Cille, or Columba, is one of Ireland's three patron saints . Colm Cille and his followers lived in the valley for a time and the ruins of several of their churches can still be seen there.
