We took a Nice 3 MILE walk. The History was explained through 7 stations. Lots of sheep! Lots of turf piles, largest bog in Ireland. Great views super windy. We can see why they made the landing here from the sky it would be flat...More

We believe this to be a fairly new attraction in the area and we’re really glad we visited. The one site is both the location of the landing of Alcock and Brown and also the site of Marconi Station – just a coincidence it seems!...More
