I was impressed with how loved and respected this is by the people who work there. I loved how cameras, pictures were not allowed inside and that people were not allowed to just linger. All too often things of years past and just damaged through...More

The visitors center was closed when I drove by, but I parked near the gate (luckily, there was a very small place to park along the narrow road) and walked along the road in both directions and snapped some photos of the stone circles and...More

A bit disappointed, no guided tours in winter and there is not that much to see. But it's a nice walk. Just don't expect to go inside any tumbs there.

Wear good walking shoes and join the group tour. The tour guide is very knowledgeable about ancient tribes of the Sligo area. There is an indoor museum and restrooms available. Take advantage of the restroom before heading to Knocknarea to see Queen Mauve's tomb.

I'm of the thinking there should be some kind of discounts card positioned for those in an economic category making it essentially challenging to visit educational and culturally related sites. My suspicion is that many who complain loudest about pricing wouldn't come near income parameters...More

Unbelievable site that is available to explore. Knowledgeable staff will answer all of the questions and you have a map of the site making it easy to enjoy.

Wasn't sure whether to rate this poor or average. Erred on the side of 'poor' based on the likelihood of wanting to visit it again, visiting experience and quality of other attractions we had experienced. Carrowmore is a cluster of 30 visible megalithic tombs in...More

We visited here and walked around (luckily it was a free day) and we understand the site needs kept which is why you would normally pay but 5 Euro is a bit steep per person I would imagine for a group of people. Two areas...More
