WATCH: Walk through this replica World War I trench in Ireland
Ever wondered what it's like to walk through a World War I trench? Well you can, in Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan.
This replica trench, found at the Cavan County Museum, has been recreated in painstaking detail - complete with 6,000 sandbags.
It claims to be the largest such replica open to the public in Ireland or the UK.
Measuring 350 metres in length, the trench zig-zags through a field next to the museum, with details as authentic as possible to 100 years ago.
In fact, the structure was built to the specifications and manuals of the Irish Guards used by the Royal Irish Fusiliers at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.
Visitors can step into a casualty clearing station, climb up a 'firing step' and feel just how forbidding the 'No Man's Land' separating sides really was.
The experience is immersive, full of period detail and works whatever the weather - with some visitors finding it surprisingly emotional.
The trench experience forms part of a wider WWI exhibition at Cavan County Museum, located about an hour and 20 minutes by car from Dublin.
