Teach Synge, on the island of Inishmaan, one of the Aran Islands off County Galway, is a beautifully restored 300 year old cottage. Having been lovingly restored to its former glory it now houses a museum to the life and work of the celebrated Irish playwright, John Millington Synge, b.1871-d.1909. JM Synge first visited the house in 1898, staying with Brid and Paidin MacDonnchadha. Theresa Ni Fhatharta, the great-granddaughter of Synge’s hosts started a campaign to have the house preserved and restored. The house has now been restored as close as possible to the way it was when JM Synge visited the MacDonnchadha family. It is open in the summer months as museum. Memorabilia including photographs, drawings and letters are on display. A converted out house holds a small library of publications by and about Synge, Yeats and Lady Gregory.
