Megalithic Tour

Join us on our one day tour along the Mayo/Sligo coastline and step back in time as you marvel at the amazing structures our ancient ancestors have left behind.  This is the ancient prehistoric coast of the Wild Atlantic Way, beautiful, alive and full of culture of thousands of years of its people.

On this tour, you will visit the Ceide Fields, the most extensive Stone Age monument in the world. The tour takes in the ancient farming field wall landscape of the Ceide Fields in North Mayo, dated to almost 6,000 years ago.

You can learn the differences between the ancient tomb structures namely court, passage and Dolmen. With their most recent names in antiquity as captured in our folklore and tales of bygone battles and warriors.

We will visit the Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery and many other hidden gems of archaeological history left by our past ancestors.

Bring a rain jacket or wind breaker as sunshine is not promised. But, we can promise you a fantastic tour which will make you want to come back to tour the West of Ireland with us again.

I met Jim Henry when organising the Achill Walks Festival , he was booked as a guide for one of our groups. I found him to be very pleasant and well organised. He prepared for each walk by visiting Achill in advance of the festival and covering the routes himself , letting us know if there were any potential difficulties on the route. He was a fountain of knowledge and always very popular with our walkers and fellow guides.
Jim continues to visit Achill Island with his groups, he keeps in touch with the tourist office , ensuring he is up to date with any new developments for tourists on the Island.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jim as a guide and wish him continued success, a true gentleman .
