The Sheep and Wool Centre is a family run interpretive centre based on the sheep and woollen industry in Ireland. Visitors to the museum can witness wool craft demonstrations showing how a sheep’s fleece is made into yearn, using methods that were practiced in this area at the turn of the last century.
Visitors can also see & learn about the various breeds of sheep on display in Leenane. During the peak season you may be lucky enough to watch the sheep being sheared of their wool. Audio presentations give visitors a chance to listen to interviews from locals who remember the past and talk about local Connemara traditions.
