It’s the gems on our doorstep that we love exploring the most and Lough Gur in Co. Limerick is definitaly one of these gems. Lough Gur is located in the South East of Ireland within the Ballyhoura region. It aims to promote, preserve and protect the history, archaeology, folklore and environment of the surrounding area.
The Heritage Centre located by the lakefront in Lough Gur is home to an exhibition that provides an overview of one of Ireland’s most important archaeological sites. It is the only area in the country where you can see visible evidence of every age since Neolithic times.
The Heritage Centre is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm and from 12 noon to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. It is opening a different times of the year but you can get all the information here.
