The excursion will begin with a visit to the Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery in the morning. In the afternoon, those delegates wishing to do so can join an additional guided tour hiking up Knocknarea Mountain, on the Queen Maeve Trail, to visit Miosgan Meadhbha (Queen Maeve's Tomb), a large Cairn surrounded by Passage Tombs, thought to date to the Neolithic. This is described as a strenuous walk, with an ascent of 300m, a length of 2.4 km and is expected to take 2 hours in total. The walk will require adequate hiking gear including suitable boots and clothes.
