Tigh na Coille: Aros

Tigh na Coille: Aros Review

On the outskirts of town is Tigh na Coille: Aros (tigh na coille is Gaelic for "house of the forest," and aros means "home" or "homestead"), a visitor center that screens occasional films and exhibits local artworks. An exhibit by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds lets you observe the eagles via a live webcam (it costs extra, which isn't clear as you enter). The café is spacious but on the expensive side.
