The Bog Village, in Glenbeigh County Kerry, allows you to step back in time to the early 18th century to recapture the way life would have been at that time.

The Bog Village is situated half way between Killorglin and Glenbeigh on the main Ring of Kerry route.

It gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy a step back in time to the early 18th century to recapture the way life would have been at that time. Peat, or turf as it is usually called in Ireland, is harvested from bogs and is still used as domestic fuel.

The village is here to preserve the past for your enjoyment. This is a most worthwhile and historic visit to see the real Kerry life as it was, in the heart of Kerry's bogland.

The Bog Village is adjacent to the Red Fox Inn Bar and Restaurant which is open seven days a week.
