Ceide Fields - Experiences to Savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

Out at the very edged of Europe, the Wild Atlantic Way stretched 1500 miles alond Ireland's western seaboard. From Malin Head in Co Donegal to Kinsale in Co Cork, through regions like Connemara, Galway Bay and Kerry, it's the longest defined coastal drive in the world!

Here is just one of the experiences to savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way:

Probe the peat at Ceide Fields: An award-winning architect designed pyramid built into the clifftop, high above the Atlantic, houses the Visitor Center for Ceide Fields.This is the largest Stone Age monument in the world, set in a vast prehistoric landscape of bog, dramatic cliffs and coastline. Preserved beneath  the wild blanket bog are 5000 year old stone walled fields, dwellings and megalithic tombs. Take the guided tour and use the archaeologists probe, sliding down the peat till you feel it striking stone placed there 5000 years ago. This is the largest of thousands archaeological sites along the Wild Atlantic Way - hundreds in this part of North Mayo alone, including standing stones, ring forts, stone circles and court tombs.
