Discover Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery, one of the most important megalithic sites in Europe. Over 60 tombs have been discovered here by archaeologists; take some time to explore these fascinating monuments.

Check out the boulder circles with central dolmens and rudimentary passages that are among the earliest megalithic chambers built in Ireland.
