This is a very good facility which has been developed by the Office of Public Works. Very good interpretive centre, good info and good film! Everywhere is spotlessly clean. However if you go there, just have a cup of coffee and a scone. The food...More

We were initially skeptical when one of our party want to go out to Ceide fields, but we were glad we did. The audio visual presentation and guided tour are very informative and it’s amazing to picture people living in this area when the landscape...More

Yes, not suitable for wheelchair bound users, but this is on the Atlantic coast on the side of a large hill, the ceide fields are out the back and a beautiful view can be seen. The guided tour was well worth the 45 minutes! Perhaps...More

We had hoped that this attraction would be on the same par as Skara Brae on Orkney, Scotland but we were disappointed. It wasn't expensive, but just didn't hold our interest. Important history? Yes. We probably wouldn't recommend for those on a busy travel through...More

We visited this ancient site on a weekday. It is worth joining a tour which lasts around an hour. Our tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable and brought the history of the site to life. It is interesting to see the place where some of...More

Fascinating place - you do need to do the tour to get the most out of the site. Be prepared to spend a couple of hours here. Visually it’s not that impressive but if you take to time to listen to the video and go...More

An amazing Stone Age site, top-notch modern facility, and outstanding guide. Bottom line: The dry-stack stone walls that run up mountainsides and mark off fields and pasturelands in the Burren and Dingle areas were here, too, but thousands of years ago, and they are buried...More

Visited the Ceide Fields near ballycastle. Intriguing to see and hear how the early Irish people farmed the land and built stone walls which are now buried under the peat. Also learned where the Irish people come from and how they got here. Fascinating. If...More

Approached from the east, along the coast from Ballina, the centre is barely visible, not just because of the distractingly beautiful Atlantic. Ballycastle and Downpatrick Head 'wedding-cake' sea-stack are an essential detour. From the cliff viewing platform below the car park, Céide Fields reveals its...More

Not a lot. All on pathways, so not too strenuous. If it gets too much just head back to the visitor centre - you're never too far away.
