Event Description

Killadangan, Co Mayo

Winter Solstice began as a celebration of winter’s end, the cycle of life beginning anew. Killadangan, a scattering of stones strewn around a salt marsh on the shores of Clew Bay, draws you right back to those Neolithic times. The mossy monoliths connect through a winter solstice alignment to a notch in the hills opposite, but get there early – the sun sets behind the hills at around 1.45pm.

Details: Approx. 5km southwest of Westport, on the Louisburgh road.
