Heapstown is the site of the largest cairn in Ireland. It is unique in that it is located on low ground and the cairn itself is thought to be a passage grave. This megalithic site is worth the trek though the fields to reach it.
Knocknashee is one of Irelands’ ancient sacred hills, and traditionally known as “the Hill of The Fairies”. It was identified as a hilltop fort in 1988 and containing cairns, burial chambers and hut sites. The climb to the top is worth it with the stunning panoramic views of the surrounding Connacht landscape.
