Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery Reviews
Net buiten Sligo ligt dit complex. We waren er ‘s ochtends vroeg en toen was het nog gesloten. We zijn toen op eigen gelegenheid over het terrein gelopen. Een van de grootste complexen 8n Ierland met ... more »Just outside Sligo lies this complex. We were there early in the morning and then it was still closed. We walked on our own property. One of the largest complexes 8n Ireland with dolmens, standing stones, graves etc. Definitely worth to visit.

If you make it here, you must do the guided tour. Our tour guide explained why this area is important and if you don't do the tour it just looks like a field with some grass covered mounds. The guide explained it very thoroughly in and interesting way. Without the guide you're not going to get much out of it. You'll learn a lot about this particular site and about the history of Ireland in general.
An absolutely wonderful historic site in Ireland with views of several cairn and plenty of small stone circles. Parking is free and there is a small fee for entry. We went in the early morning and enjoyed a coffee from the excellent coffee truck stationed outside.
