Located in the North-Western peninsula of Innisowen, Ballyliffin provides a range of activities for sightseeing. Take a journey along the northern part of the Wild Atlantic Way or view Carraickabraghy Castle or Doagh Famine Village.
There is some confusion about the origin and date of Carraickabragh Castle but it is commonly accepted that it was erected before 1600 by Phelemy Brasleigh O’Doherty. At that time Carrickabraghy was almost an island with little ground separating it from the mainland.
Doagh Famine Village offers a large selection of life size attractions portraying life in Ireland from the 1840s until the present day. The whole attraction is built around original thatched dwellings which were still inhabited up until 1983 by the owner’s family.
