    They have a very interesting collection of Celtic Jewellery and weapons which you should not miss when visiting the museum.

    It takes up most of the space in the room, so I do not even want to think how massive this animal was. Must have been a wonderful sight to see them in their days of glory. The skull comes from the North Sea area. The tusks of the skull is 10 feet long and it is the largest complete woolly mammoth skull in the world.

    On display you will be able to see the 70 - 80 million year old Dinosaur eggs that comes from China. Almost looks like cup cakes baked into a bigger cake made from stone to me. As I stood in front of the eggs I could not help but wonder what I would do if any of those eggs decided to crack open with a dinosaur appearing in front of my eyes. Would probably have run back to the car and locked it. lol

  • an siopa beag

    by Geariod Updated Jan 24, 2004

    Paidi and Maires siopa , is the last spot where you can buy a bite to eat before heading around the Slea Head route,,,,,,,you could always pop into the Pub across the road and cancel your trip around the Peninsula...................

    What to buy: Fentons scones are a must ,,,,,,,look out for them being delivered by a stocky wee fellow with reddish hair,,,you might get a discount if you you catch him at the delivery van.......

    What to pay: 2 Euros a bag..........oh, better to buy some butter and jam as well..........

Ventry Warnings and Dangers

  • follow me boy

    by Geariod Written Jan 24, 2004

    Be carefull when heading home from the pub at night , as West Kerry is the darkest place on the planet ( on a cloudy night),,,,,,also the roads are narrow and every body likes to have an extra puint of Guinness before they drive home...99% of the locals drive nice and slow , but you always get 1 maniac........
