Beavers hike to Carrowkeel

Details for the Beavers hike below.

This hike is to a very-well hidden treasure of Sligo, the Carrowkeel tombs (click here to find out more). The main tomb we will be visiting is at the top of a mountain, and is a small passage tomb (kind of like a mini-Newgrange).


Sunday, 24th April 2016


Meeting point:

Meet at 10.30am at carpark at McDermott’s Bar, Castlebaldwin, Co. Sligo

Note: We will then be driving a short distance to the starting point of the hike, so please hang on a few minutes when you arrive with your child.


Finish time:

Pick up at 1pm from starting point of hike (NOT from McDermott’s carpark!)


What to wear:

Warm clothes, strong footwear, neckerchief.


What to bring:

Hat and gloves (it can be very cold at the top of a mountain – even on a sunny day).

Flask with hot drink.

Packed lunch.
