This is a 6,000 year old Court Tomb, and you can get close to it without swarming tourists or ropes to keep you out. It's a terrific example of a court tomb, and you can walk around the entire ruin getting various nice vantage points....More

Sure, it's a bunch of rocks that have been there for 5000 years, and it's not fully understood what meaning we can take from it. But it has its own beauty and mystery to it.

Creevykeel is one of the finest court cairns in Ireland. It was built in the 3rd millennium BC and consists of a wedge-shaped mound with a burial chamber opening off the open central court. Near the narrow end of the mound are 2 further graves....More

This was a nice, short visit. It is right along the N15, with an adequate car park. There is no admission fee and seldom has any crowd. We were there by ourselves. You can see the whole layout of the court tomb and chambers and...More
