Situated in a beautiful spot overlooking Killary Harbour, this centre records Connemara's sheep and wool industry. Many different breeds of sheep graze in the valleys and mountains in Connemara, and this centre shows how wool provided essential clothing material down through the years. The visitor can see how wool was manufactured before the industry became mechanized. Demonstrations include carding, spinning, weaving and dyeing using natural plant colorings. There is also a craft shop and restaurant on the premises. The centre is open between April and September.
