A very interesting interpretive centre if this is your sort of thing. The centre was built over an 18 metre long section of 2000 year old oak timbers. The trackway has been left insitu. The remainder of the trackway is still buried in the bog...More

To visit Corlea is to take a step back in time and loog through a window on the Iron Age.A section of an ancient roadway has been uncovered and exhibited. Guides are on site to explain the history and importance of this find.

Sorry to say that nothing popped up to tell us it was all closed up! Might be handy to have an alert pop up before you leave dublin! No signs anywhere may be due to it being closed, but may be helpful to build up...More

A great place to visit if you've got some spare time in the Midlands. About 2200 years ago a wooden trackway was build by the Iron Age People, rediscovered in the later 20th century. A real hidden gem in a raised bog. Superb guides and...More

Great treasure - wonderful heritage site in beautiful bogland setting; fab guide gave us an excellent tour - so informed, engaging and interesting he was a great national treasure himself! Suggest OPW have the vision to develop this site further for all ages.

For people with an interest in Irish history, this place is a must. Genuinely expert guides who are able to explain and discuss what this trackway tells us about ancient Ireland. Really can't recommend it enough.

I spent a wet Sunday exploring this amazing historic site. My guide Noel, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. The road signposts to the trackway need to be improved. An injection of money to preserve more fully the exposed timbers is badly needed. The large expanse...More

Fabulous important site here. But a lack of signage, nothing for children in terms of a worksheet or touch exhibits etc. OPW should be trying to encourage families. The video is over 20 years old. It is badly dated and of poor quality. No food...More

For lovers of all things ancient, this place is amazing. The Visitors centre displays an ancient road made from oak planks that date back to 148 BC. The exhibition explains more about the road and how it was built & the film shows how these...More
