Long before Ireland became the ‘Land of Saints and Scholars’, it was the land of Druids and Celts. Stone age, and later Bronze age, peoples who arrived on the verdant shores and found a place that called to them spiritually.

Some of Ireland’s oldest monuments and tombs lie near Lough Gur. As far back as 3000BC, this area has been inhabited by people who left megalithic stone work, great stone circles, early Bronze objects and beaker pottery.
