MegaLithic District – the local Sites

The Gyreum is aptly positioned for your tour or group to explore the layers of history round and about.  We can organise highly academic and / or highly amusing guides to help elucidate and entertain the mysteries; sometimes a mixture of both.

the red spots are the megalithic cairns and mounds that dot the area – Heapstown Cairn formed over the Well of Slaine is the equal of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth.  Map courtesy of                                                    The green dot is the Gyreum – west of Lough na Suil formed when Balor’s single eye burnt a cometeen sized hole in that upland.  To our further west is the Well of Healing hid beneath Heapstown cairn.
