Corlea Trackway Visitor Centre


Republic of Ireland

The increasing depth of mossy, waterlogged ground made movement from place to place difficult for people living in bog areas in days gone by. At Corlea, wooden causeways were laid across the growing bog in 148 BC. The bog has undergone conservation work to keep it wet so that you get the true experience of what life and work were really like in boglands of ancient Ireland.

See an 18m-long section of the original trackway in the visitor centre, it is the largest of its kind ever excavated in Europe. The centre is decorated with murals depicting people from the past so you can get a true feeling for how they lived through displays of tools and objects from the Iron Age.
