Sacred Island Guided Tours
This website began as a small guidebook about the mysterious neolithic chambered monuments at Carrowkeel in County Sligo. While the guide book has yet to be completed, the website has expanded beyond Carrowkeel to embrace various aspects of Irish archaeology and mythology, history and music - in essence the culture of Ireland - which is one long and fascinating interwoven story spanning thousands of years.
I began my research into Irish megaliths at Loughcrew, inspired by the writings of Martin Brennan. Following that, I spent many years living at Carrowkeel in South Sligo, close to the shores of Lough Arrow, a beautiful landscape full of neolithic remains, mythology, folklore and superb traditional Irish music.
The great megalithic sites of South Sligo are Carrowkeel, Kesh Corran, Heapstown cairn and Moytura. Carrowkeel is a spectacular megalithic complex high on the northern plateaus of the Bricklieve Mountains. Several of the chambers at Carrowkeel are illuminated on occasion by the light of the sun and moon.
