Amazing place. You cab climb to the top of the big cairn and it is very amazing you can see ton of Ireland in each way!
Go to Loughcrew Gardens before going to the Cairns. You can get a key to the gate at the Cairn T entrance. Last time to get a key is 3:30pm. Then go explore at your leisure. The is a steep climb up, takes approximately 20 minutes, to the top of the hill where Cairn T is located. On a windy day, cover your ears!
Loughcrew is near Oldcastle, County Meath, Ireland.. Loughcrew is a site of considerable historical importance in Ireland
One of the best sites we visited in Ireland. It's not terribly extensive, but it was a great short hike up the hill, a nice central burial mound, a few smaller tombs surrounding it where you can see the layout of the burial chambers, and a beautiful view.
Much like any of the Irish cairn sites but has the added bonus of the fantastic panoramic view.
