Thatched Cottages Kilmore Quay

The village of Kilmore Quay has preserved the tradition of thatching, with many of the houses dating from the early 19th century. These simple vernacular structures, were often constructed of mud walls, which were then whitewashed with lime, with a thatched roof of wheaten or oaten straw. Today it is possible in Kilmore Quay to have a rare glimpse of how a traditional Irish fishing village would have looked in time gone by.
