Maggie Heaney's Cottage

Our 1700’s cottage offers visitors a trip into the past. Maggie Heaney’s cottage was lovingly restored to its original state with a few added extras.

The experience is an education for younger people and an eye opener when they realise what life was like back then. For older generations, the smell of the old turf fire will trigger memories as times long forgotten come rushing back.

Many years ago, on a visit to Loughcrew, President Eamon DeValera made sure to pop into Maggie for a pair of socks.

The Cairns

The Loughcrew Passage Tombs are positioned right beside our centre. These ancient tombs are older than the Newgrange and possibly the oldest cemetery in the world. These monuments tell of Ireland’s Neolithic Cultures and are shrouded in myth and mystery. Simply explore these wonders on your own or contact us for a guided tour.

Discover the legend of the witch or make a wish on the Hag’s Chair while in awe of the beautiful scenery that spreads in front of your very eyes. Inside Cairn T you will find beautiful ancient cravings.
