    This is an historic site but it requires a feat of imagination, as there's not a lot to see. The majority of the neolithic walls are buried under the peat, with a line of posts to mark the course of s...  more »

    Like all the best historical places in Ireland it's a bit out of the way. But well worth it. Amazing bit of our history that doesn't get a lot of coverage. Just great even for the views. Great for kids too and food is good as well. So can just head out the door and go. Works as a half hour stop off or a day out.

    Our fore bearers lived together in peace in a rich and fertile land over 5500 years ago....this is their story. Cliff views to rival Moher .

    This site is amazing. The visitors center is full of very strong interpretive information. The audio-visual presentation is excellent as well. The only down side is that there could have been a little better information in the walk around the bog. Be sure to walk down to the ocean cliffs overlook across the road from the parking. It's a stunning view!

    Its very much shut. 12:00 on April 1st. No explanation as to why it's closed. Perhaps too early in the season. You can still access the site but with no interpretive signs at all it's tricky to work out what is what; just bog and rocks. Archaeologists April fools joke?

    Seemed closed, but there is awesome observation point for cliffs there. Worth a stop.
