Carrowkeel Tombs Summer Solstice Hike 21st June 2019

June 21, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us this summer solstice for a phenomenal 2-3hr hike to the prehistoric megalithic tombs of Carrowkeel, Co. Sligo. This is a special time of the year where one of the ancient megalithic tombs is aligned with the solstice on 21st June and you can be there at this special moment.

Why did the builders align these tombs? We can discuss that on the day! Your Archaeologist guide will give you loads of information on the sites, their use, the surrounding landscape and the latest discoveries/research being carried out on the bone and artefacts that were found here a long time ago.

Prepare for a late afternoon walk to tie in with the actual solstice time on the day.. Bring hiking boots and water and a warm jacket and hat.

To Book, go to our events page on our website- you must book in advance
