Turoe Stone (The)
It is believed that The Turoe Stone was used to mark an important ritual and burial site, resembling other ancient rock formations such as the stones shapes in Kells, Co. Westmeath. This stone stands alone and is thought to date from the 2nd or 3rd century B.C. The ancient designs on the stone are arranged in four distinct sections. Similar decorations have been found in Brittany in France. These particular designs are associated with the La Tene Celts who have been traced back to 500 B.C. The Turoe Stone is now a rare National Monument.
This place is fantastic and I have been several times but the last time was definitely my final time. The staff are rude and clearly money hungry. At one stage a woman (in the middle of serving us) ran off because she thought someone might be getting in with paying!! We had a one year old baby with us, who was asleep, and woke just as we were leaving. They wanted us to go out and pay the full cost so he could go on a bouncy castle for 2 minutes before we left. Money is definitely the priority here and not customer satisfaction.
