Kerry Bog Pony is a very old Mountain and Moorland breed of pony or adapted horse standing at 3’6″ originating in Ireland, and traditionally used for bring home peat from the bog, as well as for general work on small farm. The breed has a reputation for gentle temperament, versatility and flexibility.

 

The Bog Village itself gives people a snapshot into how people lived and worked in Ireland in the 17th to 19th Century.

The bog village itself is the only one of its kind in Europe and is a heritage award winner. Such care was taken to replicate the houses that one house was moved from North Kerry and rebuilt within the Bog Village
