The Rathcroghan experience comprises of a visit to our award-winning interpretive rooms, where visitors explore the rich archaeological and historical past of Connacht’s prehistoric royal capital, Cruachan Aí. Explore how our Iron Age and Medieval ancestors dressed, what they ate, where and how they lived and what they believed in. Relive the tales and folklore of the Warrior Queen Medb and Ireland’s national epic the Táin Bó Cuailnge.

From here, visitors can explore the uniquely preserved archaeological landscape of Rathcroghan. Begin with an introduction to Medieval Tulsk before travelling out the Slighe Assail to Connacht’s Royal Site. Here you will be regaled with the tales of Ancient Ireland, on the landscape where they took place. Your expert guide will interpret the scientific surveys conducted on these monuments in order to bring Ireland’s hidden past back to life.

You will climb to the top of the majestic Rathcroghan Mound and survey your kingdom of Machaire Connacht. Then test yourself with a journey down through the ‘gates of hell’ and into the bowels of the earth at Oweynagat, (for those who dare!).

Please be advised all site tours are weather dependent, and tours may be cancelled due to inclement conditions.

Please dress appropriately in outdoor clothing and footwear. Cave entry requires suitable attire, as it is very wet and muddy.
