RATHCROGHAN VISITOR CENTRE
The Royal Capital of Connacht
Rathcroghan Visitor Centre is located in the medieval village of Tulsk, within the royal complex of Cruachan, the oldest and largest unexcavated Royal Complex in Europe. Rathcroghan is the location for over 240 identified archaeological sites, 60 National Monuments, and is the ancient capital of Connacht.
It is deeply associated with Ireland’s national epic, Táin Bó Cúailnge, and is the home of the great Warrior Queen Medb of Connacht.
Rathcroghan Royal Site has been nominated to the tentative list for UNESCO World Heritage status, which would elevate it to its rightful place of importance alongside Newgrange, and Skellig Michael. It has also been awarded Tripadvisor Centre of Excellence for the third consecutive year - 2014, 2015 & 2016. We have award-winning interpretive rooms, our Táin Café, as well as a staff of qualified archaeologists who can guide you through Ireland’s most densely populated archaeological landscape.
