About Lough Gur Neolithic Settlement and Stone Age Centre

Your journey begins around 3,000 BC at Lough Gur. In the visitor centre your are told the story which sets the scene for the adventure which awaits the visitor around the lake shore and the surrounding area. The pre-Celtic settlers of Ireland farmed and lived in this peaceful valley, protected from aggression and the elements by the surrounding hills. The archaeology of the area provides evidence for the activities of the first farmers in the region, their dwellings, rituals and burial sites as well as their tools and implements, many of which can be seen in the visitor centre. This story of people and place stretches back over 5,000 years and continues to the present day in the people who still farm and dwell in the valley. The visitor centre houses an exhibition of artefacts and display panels as well as an AV show which interprets the area.
