Boheh Stone Walk

18th April 2019

Immerse yourself in Mayo’s pre-historic culture, and come and view the Buheh Stone, a unique Neolithic feature. This guided walk, with local archaeologists, takes place twice yearly, in the spring and Autumn. The spectacular highlight (weather permitting) is seeing the ‘Rolling Sun’ phenomenon for yourself, as the sun appears to be slowly rolling down the slope of the mountain.
