  • A 5000 year old Megalithic site. Ancient farmers building the first ever stone walls to enclose their fields. The walls being buried under layer and layer of peat to a depth of several metres. The dis...  more »

  • The visitor centre is clean, bright and well presented with a small basic cafe on site. We first sat in a small theatre and got an overview of the site, it's history and the relevance. After this, we ...  more »

  • Down Patrick (down the road) is more impressive. The interpretive center is interesting but the fields themselves are underwhelming. 5 minutes and you've walked the fields.
  • Absolutely fascinating if you’re interested in history! The Neolithic site is amazingly well preserved, in a lovely, wild cliff top location. The guide was very well informed, the welcome centre is interesting and they serve a tasty lunch, as well.
  • Great views and you don't need to travel far to see a lot.
  • Céide Fields is one of those special places in Ireland, where you can stop and step back in time, to the time of the pyramids, beloved home to ancient Irish civilisations who inhabited the Mayo coastline. When the weather was a lot warmer and newly walled fields stretched across the land, enclosing the local farmers homesteads. Are we any different now to these ancient trendsetters? This space allows us the opportunity to question how far we've come in those thousands of years. Certainly worth seeing and availing of the tour guides, who guide tours daily, of this now boggy landscape. How times have changed. Hidden beneath this bog lies a story of our past, be sure to visit and explore our heritage, on this scenic route, along the wild Atlantic Way. 🌊🌊🌊
  • It was closed🤨 . Guess what guys, I went back and the really lovely manager and I had a great chat and she let me use the loo as well even though they were still not officially open for the season. Go there. It really is a beautiful place and I got to give the big ancient tree a hug too. Trees are so much nicer than humans at times. Try Belleek Park in Ballina. That place is utterly amazing. Just so so beautiful. The Whest is best. X x sheila 😊
