“Lough Gur Day Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

A great place to visit even in the rain. What a great archeological site. Be sure to visit the nearby (3km?) largest stone circle in Ireland and other close by related sites. Ver helpful staff. Our GPS didn't correctly bring us to the visitors center. Give a call and persist! You'll be glad you did.

“Magical Lough Gur”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2017

Lough Gur is only a short drive from Kilmallock and well worth the visit. It is a beautiful scenic and historical area. Lough Gur has plenty of walking tracks and much to discover. Staff at the Visitor Centre are very helpful. Just a lovely place to visit!!

“An interesting day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2017

This is one of my favourite places in County Limerick. Beautiful place for a walk or picnic. The Heritage Centre is beautifully built in the style of a Stone Age building but with state of the art technology used to bring the area's history to life. Excellent staff. A must see.
