Céide Fields


The fields are located 20 miles from Ballina at Belderrig, Ballycastle. They represent the oldest enclosed farmland discovered in the Western world (older than the Egyptian Pyramids) at about 5,000 years. They were discovered in the early 1980's and are part of an on-going archaeological investigation.















In 1993, a visitors centre was opened at the site and has attracted close to 200,000 visitors to view the historic landscape and the magnificent Céide cliffs and Dún Briste sea stack.
