A great place to visit if you've got some spare time in the Midlands. About 2200 years ago a wooden trackway was build by the Iron Age People, rediscovered in the later 20th century. A real hidden gem in a raised bog. Superb guides and...More

Great treasure - wonderful heritage site in beautiful bogland setting; fab guide gave us an excellent tour - so informed, engaging and interesting he was a great national treasure himself! Suggest OPW have the vision to develop this site further for all ages.

For people with an interest in Irish history, this place is a must. Genuinely expert guides who are able to explain and discuss what this trackway tells us about ancient Ireland. Really can't recommend it enough.

Had a lovely day out and didn’t realize how detailed and informed the Centre is. I would highly recommend coming for a visit. Staff were really lovely. Thanks Mary for a great day. Hidden gem 😊

I spent a wet Sunday exploring this amazing historic site. My guide Noel, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. The road signposts to the trackway need to be improved. An injection of money to preserve more fully the exposed timbers is badly needed. The large expanse...More

Fabulous important site here. But a lack of signage, nothing for children in terms of a worksheet or touch exhibits etc. OPW should be trying to encourage families. The video is over 20 years old. It is badly dated and of poor quality. No food...More

Great place to visit, with walkways across the bog. The staff are very friendly and helpful, with lots of knowledge of the area, possiblity more interesting than the academics. If you are in the area, go visit.

Well-financed excavation and preservation of a 148 BC roadway over bog land. Many hands felled hundreds of large oak trees, split them in half, and somehow moved them from a distance to line a trackway 2 km long. Knowledgeable staff lead tours--allow an hour.
