Learn the History of the Blasket Islands
The Blasket Centre or Blascaoid Centre is a must-do if you are on the Dingle Peninsula. It is easily found on the Slea Head Drive. The centre tells all about the history of the Blasket Islands and the famous writers who came from there. Photographs and quotes line the walls, telling the story of life on the islands before the evacuation and what happened to those who were evacuated. The centre has done an amazing job sharing the history of the Islands with visitors. This was one of my favorite things to see during our trip to Ireland and I recommend it to everyone who makes the trip to Dingle.
