Loughcrew Tours

Loughcrew Tours provide a great way of exploring these wonderful monuments.

Arrive at our centre by car or simply take a day trip from Dublin.

The Cairns at Slieve na Calliagh, are of huge historical importance.

With their beginnings stretching back over 5,000 years, they are even older than Newgrange.

The legends and stories that surround the tombs have kept it extremely well preserved.
