The Connemara Heritage and History Centre, also called Dan O'Hara's Homestead, is an open-air museum in the village of Lettershea, near the town of Clifden, County Galway, in the Connemara region, Ireland. It was established in the late 1980s.

The centre's attractions include audiovisual and history presentations, as well as outdoor exhibits including reconstructions of a crannóg, a ring fort, and a clochaun. Also on the grounds are the Dan O'Hara Homestead and pre-famine farm.

It also served as the first "Pit Stop" on The Amazing Race 12.
