“Fascinating historic site.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Interesting visitor centre to wander through before going out into the fields. Again, take the guided tour to get the most out of your visit. Our guide, Jean, was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about her homeland and brought the stones to life almost.

“impressive but under-explained”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

We have been to Carrowmore several times, and we certainly loved the walk through a vast number of tombs (always, it seems, in one of the windiest and rain-prone area of Ireland.) This certainly should be on the list of places to visit, but we were disappointed that informational signs were scant. Access to the facility was wonderful, but no tours, to our knowledge, are led by informed guides.

“Spiritual and mystical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

I was delighted to see how much work they have done on the large tomb since I was last there, also very interesting new information! It was well worth a repeat visit.

“It's Fine, Just Hop The Fence ....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

...said the caretaker when we showed up on November 5th and found the site closed. He was very nice, the site was absolutely STUNNING. It was a changeable day and the light was incredibly striking and dramatic with the squalls that rolled through. There's so much to see, and we only saw a fraction of it. A MUST VISIT, even if it's closed for the season.

“the breath of history embraces you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

What a mystic place! the ladies at the reception are very helpful and friendly. You get a guide to take along, leave some money as a token, and start your tour of the magic graves! Ireland at its best!
