Cluain Cearbh?n - Meadow of the Buttercups

The Famine Museum in Louisburgh recounts local memories of the famine, presents coverage of the famine in the media, nationally and locally, and shows how links have been established between Louisburgh and other parts of the world, culminating in the local famine walk along Doo Lough Valley.

The Granuaile Centre recounts the life and times of the 16th century O'Malley Chief and Sea Captain, Granuail (Grace O'Malley or Gr?inne Uaile) who headed the shipping fleet which reigned supreme in Clew Bay at that time.
