Really love the colour in Amy's work...Amy is hosting a meet and greet of her exhibition @ 10 am on Monday the 4th December at the centre. Come along for tea and a chat!Hi. Here is my piece called 'New Beginnings' . It will be part of my exhibition starting next week on Loughcrew Megalithic Centre. Can't wait! This is a one off original, framed, mixed media piece of art at 65euro. I am always inspired by the rolling Irish hills and little houses surrounded by huge trees and of course, I am a little bit obsessed with looking at the night sky! Hope to see you at my exhibition.

Sorry I couldn't make it Amy, but I did drop in on Sunday. Some really nice works here. I especially like the 'mixed media works, very colourful and priced ato sell. Best of luck with the exhibition -- we may yet bump into each other, my 'home from home'.

Loughcrew Passage Tombs

A short walk from our centre will bring you to Loughcrew’s Ancient Passage Tombs. These tombs are over 5,000 years old which makes them older than Newgrange. Hear about the legend of the witch who is credited for these tombs, sit on her throne and take in the breath-taking scenery from the Royal County’s highest point.

Upon entering the tomb you will see some amazing carvings all along the passage. Follow the path of the Equinox's sunlight to see the spectacular carved stone that the sun strikes twice a year. Look up at the corbeled roof that has kept this structure intact for thousands of year as you gaze at the mysterious art that our ancestors worked immensely to create.

Return to the warmth of Nelly's Kitchen Café where you can sip on our Bewley’s coffee and a homemade scone. Our children’s playground is located beside the courtyard where you can relax while the children play.
