Quiet Man Cottage Museum

The Quiet Man lives on

In 1951 John Ford's greatest movie "The Quiet Man" starring John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara and Barry Fitzgerald was made. It was set in the beautiful west of Ireland with filming being centred in the village of Cong on the Mayo-Galway border.

Quiet Man Cottage Museum

Quiet Man Cottage Museum is a novel concept which will give the visitor a total Quiet Man experience as if they were actually 'on-set'.

Located by the river at Circular Road, Cong, between actual locations used for the filming, the ground floor of the cottage has been designed as an exact replica of 'White-o-Mornin' Cottage.

Painstaking effort has ensured that all the furnishings, artifacts, costumes etc are authentic reproductions.

The four poster bed and the tables and chairs which 'Mary Kate' cherished, the thatched roof, emerald green half door and white washed front combine to charm all those who visit it.

"Quiet Man Cottage Museum " is a must for any Quiet Man enthusiasts, or even those wishing to visit a typical Irish cottage of the 1920's.
