At Craggaunowen - The Living Past, we come to the arrival of the Celts in Ireland. The story is told of how they lived, farmed, hunted and died. Visitors can, for example, see a replica of a Crannog (Lake Dwelling), Ring Fort and An Iron Age Roadway a nd an outdoor cooking site. Craggaunowen Castle which was built around 1550 is also situated on the grounds. A major feature is the Brendan Boat built by Tim Severin who sailed from Ireland to Greenland, re-enacting the voyage of St.Brendan, reputed to have discovered America centuries before Columbus. See animals such as Soay sheep, wild boar, Jacob sheep and Kerry Cattle.
