The Kerry Bog Village is a museum situated in west Kerry focused on the history and culture of Ireland.[1][2][3] It recreates traditional Irish thatched houses and the lives of their inhabitants, and its founder was largely responsible for the resuscitation of the Kerry bog pony as a viable breed. The museum is located between the towns of Killorglin and Glenbeigh.

The village's operators describe the village as unique in Europe.[4] The village's structures were built using authentic 18th century construction techniques.[1]

Seton Hall University's Office of International Programs' three credit Irish program includes time in the village museum.[5]
