Glencolumbkille Folk Museum.
 

(Glen of St Columbkille.)

This folk museum consists of three model thatched cottages built and furnished in the styles that would have been used in the 1800, 1850, and 1900 respectively. When viewed they give an indication of material and social progress among the poor people of Donegal during the nineteenth century.

There is also a nineteenth century schoolhouse, a shebeen (Illegal drinking house) and a large iron cooking pot similar to what was used during the famine, to serve soup to the poor.
