We enjoyed our visit to the Lough Gur Heritage Centre today. Packed with great information about centuries of Irish living. Besides the audio information tour, one of the docents at the museum gave us a guided personal tour through the displays. She answered all our questions and directed us to see the nearby sites expanding our understanding of the local history. We wish we had enough time to climb the trails and see more of the historic excavations. Well worth the time.

Had Lough Gur tagged as a place to stop for a quick look while traveling through Ireland. Found it to be way more than I imaged with various ruins and spectacular views. Staff at visitor center very helpful. Glad we made this part of our visit
