Pearse's Cottage
Patrick Pearse (1879 - 1916) - the executed leader of the 1916 uprising, spent some of his leisure time in this modest thatched cottage where he took the opportunity to improve his knowledge of the Irish language among the local speakers. The interior, although burned during the War of Independence, has been reconstructed and contains a number of mementoes of Pearse, the idealistic school teacher, whose rebellion and death are considered to have been a turning point in Irish history. Guided tours available on request. Access for people with disabilities is restricted.

Currach Racing
Currach are traditional rowing boats still much used in the Aran Islands and all along the west coast. They are made of wooden slats which are then covered in several layers of tar. In the olden days they would have been covered in hide. They were designed thus because wood was (is) scarce along the coastal region.
