Brace yourself for one of the most incredible views of Ireland from its summit! We proceed close to the Dún Ailinne site, where we can take a view of this ancient ceremonial site. Then we shall witness the second tallest high cross in Ireland, the Moone. We will stop to see the Brownshill Portal Tomb, said to have Ireland‘s (and perhaps Europe’s) largest capstone.
