Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not much walking to do. Through a fence, 5 minute dander and you are there. Interesting to see. You will probably only spend 10 minutes here. The views close by are beautiful.

Quaint little cemetery just off the main road on Boa Island. It has a gate to keep the farm animals out.
The most interesting feature in the cemetery is the two-headed statue and the little statue adjacent. Origins of these are unknown.
This is an active cemetery, so be respectful.

Interesting little stop if you are in your way across Boa Island. Amazing to think how long ago someone carved that!

This stone is located in a small local cemetery on Boa Island (in Lower Lough Erne - connected into the road system). Approach is via a short drive, down to a farm. It is signed off the main road.

There is some interpretation. The stones are totally unprotected and accessible.

Many people would find these interesting to see

I bought a necklace with this janus-figure on it a few years ago on a previous trip to Ireland and had been looking for the chance to see the real thing. It was an adventure, for sure. We drove about an hour out of Sligo through some beautiful scenery and came upon a small sign that notified us of our arrival at the Janus statues. We traveled down a small drive onto what I am assuming was someone's personal farm. At the bottom of the drive was a very old looking, small burial site being guarded by two large-horned goats. The entrance to the grave yard was a gated entrance that confused me about how the goats got there lol. But it was overwhelming to be able to walk right up to the statues that are so old and historic without any border or protection. It was such a fun time getting there and so beautiful.

Make a point to find Caldragh Cemetery on Boa Island at the north end of Lough Erne. You can park the car after driving down a narrow road, then a short walk through a paddock to the famous 'Janus Stones' which are enigmatic stone carvings with a face on both sides. They have been moved since they were discovered on Lusty Beg but you can still use your imagination to see them complete. No one knows exactly what they are which is the beauty and mystery of them, there is a trough on the top which again no one knows its purpose. People have put coins all around and in the trough for some reason - Good Luck?, who knows.
I was delighted and excited, the others less so (we all shared a laugh about all this).

Local myth says if you touch the hand on the janus statue you feel a vibrating sensation. I didn't feel anything however the females in my company did. So after all these years Janus still has the power to move women.. A true ladies man.

A pre-Christian two-faced idol in an ancient, overgrown cemetery. Not for people with walking difficulties!

Off the beaten tourist trap, we didn't know anything about this but happened upon it driving past and saw the sign for the cemetery. It was only when we got there that we came across the two statues. Although these 2 stones are situated in a Christian cemetery, they are from Celtic times. Fabulous. Full of mystery. Glad I went though.

We went to Boa Island especially to see the Janus Stones. This graveyard lays at the end of a dirt road, quietly tucked away in the bushes. We entered the yard which was quite overgrown and only a few recent stones were placed. The Janus Stones stood there waiting for us as they have been waiting for countless of people over the ages. Very special to see them and admire them. Also, we were the only people on the premises, it's nice and quiet and not touristy at all.
