Autumn Equinox Festival at Loughcrew Cairns

Animated Ajax Loader
Dates: 
21/09/2018 to 23/09/2018


Loughcrew Cairns are a series of 5000 year old burial mounds in north Meath. One of the best-preserved and most accessible tombs at Loughcrew, known as Cairn T, faces the rising sun at the vernal (March) and autumnal (September) equinoxes which shines through the passage to illuminate symbols carved onto the back wall of the chamber. 

Cairn T will be kindly opened by the OPW for Equinox sunrise on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of September from 7.15am until 8.30am

Admission to the Chamber of Cairn T is free of charge. As the chamber is quite small, only 5 or 6 people can be inside at a time.

Please note that it is very important that visitors dress warmly and are wearing stout shoes. The climb to the top of Carnbane East is very steep and can be slippery after rain or on frosty mornings.

Please bring a torch/flashlamp as the Hill will be in darkness.
