   The Quiet Man Cottage Museum is a novel concept, which will give the visitor a total Quiet Man experience as if you were actually on-set. Located by the river at Circular Road, Cong, between the actual locations used for the filming, the ground floor of the cottage has been designed as an exact replica of White-o-Mornin’ Cottage.

   Painstaking effort has ensured all the furnishings, artifacts, costumes, etc., are all verified authentic reproductions. The four poster bed and the tables and chairs which Mary Kate cherished, the thatched roof, emerald green half door, and white washed front combine to charm all those who visit.

   The Quiet Man Cottage Museum is a must for any Quiet Man enthusiasts, or even those wishing to visit a typical Irish cottage of the 1920s. Experience this unique journey into the past, including:

  • Audio Visual Presentation
  • Souvenirs
  • Guide to Locations / Historical Sites

   The Wayne family visited the Quiet Man Cottage Museum, part of Museums of Mayo… So can you!

Until next time>                               “never forget”
