Located just outside the quaint village of Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow, Coolakay Heritage Centre is encouraging visitors to make a day of it this summer! Immerse yourself in farm life past and present with a visit to the museum where you can see everything from a pony and trap, Deutz and Ferguson Tractors to milk churns. Some of the tractors on display have earned owner/historian Robert Roe awards in shows for best restored tractors. The hand-threshing mill on display is one of only 3 in Ireland and dates back to the mid 1800s. Robert offers guided tours for 8 people or more on request, giving guests real life stories of the items on display.
