Attractions At Craggaunowen Pre-Historic Park

Explore Craggaunowen Castle the 16th century restored Medieval Castle built in 1550 standing defiantly on a crag overlooking the lake and enjoy magnificient views of the countryside. Observe rare and really interesting animal breeds such as wild boar and soay sheep - specimens of the pre-historic era.

Visit one of Ireland’s earliest roadways or ‘togher’ dating to 148 BC. Exploring the Souterrain is fun - designed to store food but these were often a welcome escape route when under attack from the enemy! Good place for hide and seek!
