Musaem Chorca Dhuibhne is located in Baile an Fheirtearaigh or Ballyferriter in
County Kerry. It is an ideal place to get a taste of the archaeology, history
and culture of the Dingle Peninsula.
This is a fasinating little museum
in the village of Ballyferriter. Exhibits include one of the largest soup pots
used in Ireland during the Great Hunger. The exhibition covers the geology,
archaeology and history of the area from the mesolithic era through to modern
times. The Ogham stones alone are worth a visit. The museum also houses a café
with home baked scones and a bookshop which stocks maps and walking guides as
well as specialising in books in the Irish language.
Corca Dhuibhne is
one of the most spectacularly beautiful areas in Ireland, some of its geological
formations are 410 million years old. The museum tells this story.
