Top 100 Attractions Review

Craggaunowen is another one of those must see attractions whilst your visiting the west coast of Ireland. Whilst walking round this historic jewel one could be forgiven for thinking you had arrived via a time machine. I found not only the surroundings, and the staff to be totally believable but the animals that they have roaming around really made me feel like I had been transported back to the days of the Late Bronze Age people. I have too say that there are too many things to see here at Craggaunaowen, too many to talk about in only 150 words, so I will finish by just saying that I felt that I could of stayed all day here and I definitely will return as soon as I can, as I couldn't see or do everything on offer here! A massive Top 100 thumbs to Craggaunowen and all of its staff.
