Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Araglin Valley - Cairn

Araglin Valley - Cairn

Located in a col between Cnoiceen Hill and the Monuvallagh mountains to the east, this small circular cairn measures just 2 metres in diameter and is 0.5 metres in height.

The monument is part of the Araglin Valley archaeological complex. From here there is wonderful views to the west and to the north east is the sweeping majestic backdrop of Seefin and the Bearna na Madra gap (photograph above).

 

Directions: From Treenearla Commons at top of the Mauma Pass, continue on the descent towards Kilbrien. Take the first turn right which is after about 3.5 km. Follow this track into the valley for 1.5km till you reach a parking space on the right.

From here, the Cairn is about 0.4 km up and over Cnoiceen Hill to the SE.
