It's a bit hard to find but we'll worth the search. The staff could not have been more helpful or knowledgeable. The road is amazing, the methods used for preservation is like the Mary Rose, and supporting displays good. It was good to see the peat bog outside and the local plants

I have now been to the trackway twice - which is twice more than any other person I know and twice more than any of my Irish relatives. Built in the Iron age (first century BC) it appears to start nowhere in particular and go nowhere in particular - except that they have only excavated a short section of it so the thinking is that it may have headed to the royal palace at Tulsk and indeed been built as a royal causeway. Part of the charm of this attraction is the maze of roads you have to travel through the bog to get there (make sure you have a good map or a sat nav which knows where you are going), the fact that it is usually almost empty so you have the dedicated attention of the guide (who is exceptionally knowledgeable on this and other Irish bog finds), the beauty of the building which houses the exhibit, the views over the bog as you investigate the reconstructed trackway outside and the bog plants which grow unheeded whether there is anyone to appreciate them or not. Scenic, historical and atmospheric.
A must see for anyone interested in history or archaeology - or bogs.

This visitor attraction could very easily decide upon a version of a story that would lure crowds to this curiousity, but they choose to remain true to the mystery that history can sometimes be; admit that there are unanswered questions. A budding archaeologist will be fascinated. The building is great. The surrounding area is great. The staff, the information, the knowledge - all worth a little detour from Longford. On the way to Mayo or Sligo from Dublin? Stop off!

This 2,200 year wooden road is well worth a visit. Beautifully preserved and indoors which is great given the irish weather. Helpful staff. It is also free which is an added bonus. No cafe so bring a picnic.
