Spring Equinox 2023 Events at Loughcrew Megalithic Centre | Discover Boyne Valley Meath, Ireland

Spring Equinox 2023 Events at Loughcrew Megalithic Centre

Here at Loughcrew, just outside Oldcastle in Co. Meath, we have celebrated the Spring & Autumn Equinox for many years. The famous Cairn T, which sits on top of the highest point in the county, has an incredible alignment with the equinox sunrise, dating back thousands of years.

At Loughcrew Megalithic Centre we believe this is cause for celebration and we invite you to come celebrate with us to!
Spring Equinox this year officially falls on Monday 20th March.

  • You do not need to book to visit the hill for sunrise.
  • This is a free, non - ticketed event open to the public.
  • Loughcrew Cairns are on a very steep hill. Sensible footwear is advised, as is a torch to light the way up.
