Loughcrew Equinox Events

17 - Wednesday 21 March 2018
Venue: Loughcrew Megalithic Centre

For hundreds of years, people have gathered at the Loughcrew Cairns for the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes – the days halfway between the winter and summer solstices on which there is an equal amount of light and dark.

The Office of Public Works each year opens the up the tombs so crowds can experience the sunrise at the Cairn T, which is aligned with the equinox sunrise.

The Loughcrew Megalithic Centre will be hosting a series of Equinox Events around this annual celebration. These include holistic therapies, talks, tours, and arts and crafts for all ages. They also offer accommodation for those who want to visit the Loughcrew Cairns for sunrise on the mornings of the 19th, 20th, and 21st March.
