Muckross Traditional Farms, Killarney, Ireland Photos

Muckross Traditional Farms features three different types of farm houses which represent Irish farm life from the 1920's until the 1950's when electricity became available in the countryside. The farm dwellings range from simple one or two room cottages to a much larger home with formal rooms, fine furniture & much greater privacy for the occupants. Additional buildings represent other aspects of a farming community such as the farm laborer, the blacksmith & the saddler.
