These stone walled fields in north Mayo extend over thousands of acres and thought to be almost 6,000 years old. They are covered by a natural blanket bog with its own unique vegetation and wildlife. The Céide Fields can be considered an extensive Stone Age monument, with field systems, dwelling areas and megalithic tombs.
