The Ceide Fields are the most extensive Stone Age monument in the world, consisting of field systems, dwelling areas and magalithic tombs.
Beneath the wild boglands of North Mayo lies the Céide Fields, the most extensive Stone Age monument in the world, consisting of field systems, dwelling areas and megalithic tombs. The stone walled fields, extending over thousands of acres are almost 6,000 years old, the oldest known in the world.
This is a great place to discover Mayo's forgotten history. Enjoy the guided tour, the Interpretative Centre and a cuppa afterwards. Lovely scenery in this area so a drive around is recommended.
This is the place that I find most fascinating in Co Mayo, explaining the fascinating story of the people who inhabited Ireland more than 5000 years ago. Their homes, fields and history are all there underneath the bog, so they were there before the bog changed the face of Ireland, they were there…

“Mayo offers the visiting angler excellent fishing and a wide choice. The River Moy is internationally acknowledged as an exceptional salmon fishery, producing several thousand salmon to the rod annually. Good salmon angling both on rivers and lakes, is widely available throughout the County. Brown trout fishing is widely available throughout the County and is particularly good on the Moy system which includes Lough Conn. The official recorded annual brown trout catch from Lough Conn in recent years has been in the region of 3,500 to 4,000 fish, averaging 1 lb. in weight. However, the real catch is probably in the region of 6,000 to 7,000 trout annually. In relation to Lough Conn, anglers should bear in mind that this lake is still a self-sustaining natural system, and has never required stocking. The peak season on Lough Conn is of course the Mayfly period which gets underway towards the end of May. However, very good trout fishing is not uncommon between August and early October. ”
