A Neolithic site with stone walls dating back to over 6,000 years ago
The Céide Fields are famous for many reasons. It is a Neolithic site with stone walls dating back to over 6,000 years ago and it overlooks sheer cliffs providing onlookers with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and our Western coastline. While walking through the fields you will notice gorgeous and rare flora that is unique to the West of Ireland due to the variety of weather that arrives from across the ocean from the American continent.
Here you can indulge yourself in a vast prehistoric landscape, a natural wild ecology of blanket bog, dramatic cliffs and coastline, and a much acclaimed building, which has received Ireland's most prestigious architectural award.
The simplicity of the fields conceals the fact that here is the most extensive Stone Age monument in the world located in an extra-ordinary position.
