Visit Downpatrick Head and the Céide Fields     

The Céide Fields are the oldest known field systems in the world - they’re even older than Egypt’s pyramids. The remnants of the ancient settlements and megalithic tombs have been preserved thanks to a protective bog environment. Here you can indulge yourself in a vast prehistoric landscape, a natural wild ecology of blanket bog, dramatic cliffs and coastline and of course the majestic Downpatrick Head, one of the signature points on the Wild Atlantic Way.
