A great stop to see a piece of pre-Celtic archaeology. This was part of the tour we had with Sligo tours.

A Neolithic court tomb, it's very impressive and easy to get to. It has a small car park on the main road near Mullaghmore. Well worth a visit.

I never had an idea about court tombs until I saw this! Gained a better understanding of Irish history after seeing this. Heard a lot of explanations from out tour guide. Great background for an Instagram photo!

A sit of great Archaeological importance to the story of Ireland. But apart from that it is a very tranquil place with it own ambiance well worth a visit.

Have a look at the photographs, the tombs are open, not underground, you walk among the large stones.
