I can not recommend this place highly enough!! i just happened to be passing today it was a gorgeous day corlea is on my doorstep but I never made the time, maybe it took a pandemic to realise the treasures within our own locality..2000 yrs ago or thereabouts our ancestors laid a trackway ...across a bog ..luckily the bog preserved it .. and through a lot of ingenuity we can go and see it 2000 yrs later...how cool and amazing..I want to thank our guide Noel ..its an absolute privilege to be in the company of someone who is so passionate about our history and immense gratitude to all who worked to preserve this treasure...🙏

We were looking in our Dorling Kindersly guidebook before continuing our tour of Ireland, and spotted information about the Corlea trackway. It sounded interesting, so we decided to take a detour before heading to the west coast. We were really glad we went, although it was a little difficult to find. The guide was excellent, giving us lots of information before showing us the preserved section of the Iron Age trackway, which is displayed in situ, within the visitor centre ( the track continues outside the centre, in the bog. ) There is also a short film of the excavation, which was very interesting. Outside there is a gravel pathway which has been constructed to enable you to take a walk through the bog environment- worth doing if you have time and the weather is fine. Very clean toilets in the visitor centre, but no refreshments available when we visited.

En route from Ballymahon to Lanesboro, we spotted a signpost for the Corlea Trackway. Looking for a scenic walk with our dog, Molly, we decided to check it out. Walkway path is a firm gravel path and is surrounded by bog and deep water pools. Pathway brings you to the Celtic-shaped visitor centre and entry is free. We had the most fantastic individual attention from our guide today who showed us the 18-minute video and an excavated portion of the walkway dating from 148BC. It was Heritage week so there a group of school children making Celtic swords and shields. Molly (the dog) had to wait outside. She had the most fantastic walk here. Lovely centre with clean toilets and a very interesting historic exhibition. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
