Benwee Head on the North Mayo Cliff drive

Finally, perhaps you prefer a scenic drive and a bit of walking along the North Mayo coast??
A little further drive (35km) leads you to the stunning North Mayo Coast and the famous world heritage site of the Ceide Fields. The Céide Fields are the oldest known field systems in the world, over five and a half millennia old. It is a unique Neolithic landscape of world importance, which has changed our perception of our Stone Age ancestors. The remains of stone field walls, houses and megalithic tombs are preserved beneath a blanket of peat over several square miles. They tell a story of the everyday lives of a farming people, their organized society, their highly developed spiritual beliefs, and their struggle against a changing environment beyond their control.
