Welcome to Loughcrew Cairns

Like Brú na Bóinne, the graves were all built around 3000 BC, but unlike their better-known and better-excavated peers, the Loughcrew tombs were used at least until 750 BC.

Although there are 32 tombs here, most are on private land and inaccessible to the public. It is possible, however, to visit Cairn T at Carnbane East, a steep but scenic 15-minute climb from the car park.
