Ceide Fields

The Céide Fields, near Ballycastle, certainly gives you a unique experience. For this is not just another archaeological monument or visitor centre. Here you can indulge yourself in a vast prehistoric landscape, a natural wild ecology of blanket bog, dramatic cliffs and coastline, and a much acclaimed building, which has received Ireland's most prestigious architectural award.

The simplicity of the fields conceals the fact that here is the most extensive Stone Age monument in the world located in an extra-ordinary position.

Three elements make Ceide Fields interesting: Archaeology, Geology and Botany.

The experience of walking again in these ancient fields, which have been buried for almonst fifty centuries… that is what Ceide Fields is about.
