“History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Nothing to astonish one, but more of a pilgrimage, to visit these sort of places gives us a sense of the event in history.

“Alcock and Brown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

What a place to land. It's interesting to think of the awful journey and the bravery/madness that such a large reward provokes.

“Very little to see, except a monument.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

Very disappointing, lots of open bog land, some good views over Clifden, but very little about Alcock and Brown

“Good Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

The views are better than the site itseslf which is only a stone with a plaque - road is single track with grass up the middle - got to hope you don't meet anyone.
