Great place to visit, with walkways across the bog. The staff are very friendly and helpful, with lots of knowledge of the area, possiblity more interesting than the academics. If you are in the area, go visit.

Well-financed excavation and preservation of a 148 BC roadway over bog land. Many hands felled hundreds of large oak trees, split them in half, and somehow moved them from a distance to line a trackway 2 km long. Knowledgeable staff lead tours--allow an hour.

We read about the Corlea Trackway before traveling to Ireland from the U.S. I wonder if many local folks know about the site, due to little publicity? We drove by acres of a peat harvesting area before arriving at the visitor's centre. Most of the...More
