Visited with the Mrs and toddler. Was very quite, so much so that we had the entire place to ourselves.

Staff in the centre were wonderful and helpful, and spent time talking to us about the place. We decided to go for the guided tour and took the hike up to the fairy village. The views from up there are amazing and well worth dragging the 2 year old up the steps!

Museum is small but functional and gives a good history of the place. Stuff laid on for the kids, and clothes to dress up in so they can pretend they love in the olden days.

Well worth the visit.

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.

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!!
