Katie’s Claddagh Cottage and Claddagh Arts Centre

The Claddagh was originally a thriving fishing village of cottages. Nearly abandoned during the famine in the 1840s, it was completely demolished by the 1950s. The Claddagh Arts Centre opened, and today it stands as a museum with every last detail, from the open fire to the sash windows and half door, as it was 200 years ago. The cottage is open each day to the public and hosts storytelling evenings, classes, workshops and local events. There is a specific emphasis on charity events in the centre. Each guest receives a cup of tea/coffee and a homemade scone baked above the open fire, and can view maps and records to see if they may be descended from the Claddagh people.

They also sell stunning pieces of art, crafting from bog oak, stone and wood. They can even host functions of up to about 80 people on request! What a stunning place for wedding photos with the roses winding up the handmade trellises out front and the flowers blooming outside the sash windows…
