Ireland is home to a wealth of Neolithic and megalithic sites ranging from tombs like Newgrange to standing stones, dolmens and fairy forts.
The Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery covers some 5km square and is one of the largest Stone Age cemeteries in Europe.
One of the more prominent of these is the Drombeg Stone Circle, overlooking the sea just outside the fishing port of Glandore.
The site also features the remains of a fulachta fiadh, an Iron Age cooking pit.
Further down the western seaboard, prehistoric burial sites have also been discovered in the rugged Burren area of Co. This portal tomb is one of Ireland's most photographed Neolithic sites, recognised on many a postcard and dates back over 5000 years.
In 1986 the site was excavated and the remains of 16 people were found, dating back to 3800 BC.
On the Beara Peninsula just outside Castletownbere is another impressive monument, the Derrennataggart Stone Circle, consisting 10 upright stones.
