Carrowkeel or ’Ceathramhadh Caol’ meaning Narrow Quarter is one of Irelands’ finest megalithic cemeteries, overlooking Lough Arrow and along part of the ’Miners Historical Trail’. A well known botanist, Robert Loyd Preager came across numerous incredible megalithic tombs over 100 years ago and decided to excavate some of them...

Simply getting here will take your breath away! You will enter a large limestone valley where once a glacier sat. High rock walls shelter you from westerly winds. Begin your walk with us at the carpark at Carrowkeel. Embrace this incredible landscape! There are secret gems hidden amongst the gorse where sheep graze happily. 
 

We’ll visit ancient tombs and explain how they were discovered here and what was found insdie. The artefacts are mind blowing. We’ll also show you an unusual hut site settlement where the tomb builders may have lived. Round ciarns dot the hilly landscape and the views to the North are amazing. 

If the weather permits and upon request, we can have a delicious bbq afterwards! Just ask us.
