Visitors hear what happened when Hollywood invaded the sleepy village of Cong in 1951; what the film stars were like; how they interacted with the locals; and how the locals became intimately involved in the making of the movie.
The tour includes entrance to The Quiet Man Museum, which offers an on-set experience of the White O’Morn cottage. The Museum also houses original artefacts from the movie including the fishing rod used by Father Lonergan and Michaeleen Og’s horse Napoleon’s harness.
Visitors can dress up in costume for photos and re-enactments. A great interactive experience full of good old Irish craic.
The walking tour and museum entry last approximately 1 hour. The tour consists of a short, easy stroll around the village of Cong with stops every few minutes at the movie locations. The tour and museum are wheelchair and mobility scooter accessible.
