Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

 

 

 Visiting Sites

 

 

Time - don't be in a hurry, it may take longer than you think to find a site

Walking Boots/Wellies - an essential

Patience -  some may be needed

Mobile Phone - another essential in case of an accident

Camera - for your own take on the monument

Courtesy - ask permission when necessary

Respect - don't litter, damage or take souvenirs

 

If you have to ask directions go to a house (preferably a farmhouse) as the occupants most likely will have lived there for generations and will  have a good knowledge of local landmarks.

 

Warning

On the approach to many site locations you will come across 'Electric Fences' ( a thin wire about 2 feet high around the field boundary).These are erected by the farmer to restrict cattle movement and can give you a mild electric shock which is usually harmless.

To avoid this unpleasant occurrence, be mindful of their presence.
