“It is very surreal to watch the movie and to be literally sitting in the location where some of the scenes in the movie were filmed. I’m a Quiet Man Crazy myself and it is amazing to see the movie projected on such a large screen – I must have watched the movie hundreds of times in my life, but watching it in The Quiet Man Cinema I have seen details in the movie that I have never seen before. It was such a treat!” Lisa, The Quiet Man Tour Guide

I return on my annual pilgrimage to The Quiet Man country every year – taking the tour, staying in The Quiet Man B&B - Michaeleen’s Manor, and this year I will be taking in the latest development - watching The Quiet Man and John Ford Dreaming The Quiet Man in the cottage cinema. This unique opportunity to watch my favourite movie while in Cong will really complete The Quiet Man experience.
