Tombs at Carrowmore

Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery, an OPW heritage site, is home to one of the most densely populated complexes of megalithic tombs in Ireland, as well as home to some of the oldest, dating back to 3700BC. The cemetery is home to at least 30 passage tombs in various states of survival, while at least 25 more are known to have been destroyed since 1800. The tour is self guided, and the visitors centre has a laminated guide available to borrow which lists information on all visible tombs. Tomb 51, the largest tomb on site, has been excavated, revealing a roofed central chamber and a megalithic art.
