Lough GurApprox. Time: 2 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

Lough Gur is one of Ireland's principal archeaological sites. The pre-Celtic settlers of Ireland farmed and lived in this peaceful valley, protected from aggression and the elements from the surrounding hills. The archaeology of the area provides evidence for the activities of the first farmers in the region, their dwellings, rituals and burial sites as well as their tools and implements, many of which can be seen in the visitor centre. This story of people and place stretches back over 5000 years and continues to the present day in the people who still farm and dwell in the valley.
