Our first visit to this attraction. It was cold and windy and a very long walk to cover all of it if you stop to read all the signs and explanations. I'd do it again on a better weather day. Free and historic location.

Quite interesting walk amidst sheep and active bog cuttings. Well done information kiosks with right mix of text and pictures, as well as audio powered by hand cranks. Marconi's stations were so unbelievably audacious--

Approx 3 mile loop, fairly easy(I’m 70). Very well thought out and informative. Two history lessons in one walk:first wireless transmission plus first trans Atlantic flight. And it’s FREE

You're in Ireland - depending on whom you speak to it's either. Having been there I reckon it's Clifden. We found it easily, but then a decent map helps!
