Having visited a lot of neolithic sites around Ireland, I'm well aware that some can be worth the visit, and some are simply... well, boring to be frank. The Ceide Fields is among the former, thankfully, and is well-worth the visit. Its beautiful setting alone makes the drive rewarding (the view is really lovely in every direction), but as well as this, the interpretive centre was actually really excellent (and I normally hate interpretive centres), and the guided tour of the site was very informative and interesting. Although little enough of the site is actually exposed for viewing, you really get a sense of the enormity of the site, and the sense of time and climate change is very thought-provoking. Overall, if you're in North Mayo, I would definitely put this high on your list. It's very interesting, and very beautiful
