Glad we took the advice and visited. We were also fortunate to arrive within half an hour of the commencement of a guided tour. The guided tour is a must - otherwise you see - bog, stones, wildflowers, views of the Atlantic, and walk on boardwalks. The guided tour explains what this place is about, its history, and changes, over... More

WOW! We were staying in Castlebar and decided to head up to the northern coast of county Mayo to check out the Ciede Fields. To our lovely surprise they were actually closed for the winter, yet we followed the signs on the gate saying "to enter through the delivery entrance" and a wonderful woman was in the building getting some...

A wonderful place to spend an hour or so. Really interesting interpretive centre that does nice food too, then a boardwalk through the Ceide Fields. The ancient walls and field divisions are clearly evident and the guide was interesting abd knowledgeable too. Amazing Atlantic views add to the whole experience. I absolutely loved this enchanting place.

Well off the beaten trail but very much worth seeing. It is a unique historical site going back well before modern man put his stamp on earth. The tour staff were very friendly and our guide was knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the neolithic period. He had lots of information about this site and had toured other european sites so... More

The coastal drive to the Ceide Fields is stunning and we were lucky to have beautiful blue skies and autumnal (i.e. cold!) sunshine when we visited in late October close to the end of the season. The centre itself has been sensitively designed to fit into the landscape and is visible for miles around. It certainly cuts an imposing outline... More

This was really worth the drive. The centre staff were very friendly and our tour guide was knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the neolithic site. She had lots of information and was able to tell us about current research and compare it to other sites around Europe. A history mad 15 year old thought this site was "cool!" And two... More

A great experience. Thankfully the weather was absolutely beautiful - the views are simply stunning from the viewing platform across the road. The center staff were very welcoming and entry at 4 euros was very reasonable. The guided tour was excellent - our guide Jim clearly loved his job and his enthusiasm and knowledge was wonderful to see and hear.... More

Visited the Ceide Fields with a friend back in August this year. We loved the explanation of the discovery of the site, and the guide was excellent - providing enough 'technical' information alongside insights into what life might have been like in this ancient settlement. The visit involves a walk around part of the site and we were there in... More

This is a fascinating site and very much a tribute to one man and a stick who probed the peat to find the old field boundaries - (however, couldn't help thinking that in some places within a 5mile radius the crofters are still using the same boundaries and they are plain to see above ground!) Probably not of great interest... More
