The cairns at Loughcrew form the largest complex of passage graves in Ireland, much older than the better known Newgrange. The megalithic structures were originally built about 4000 BC as burial chambers. The cairns are in two groups; each of which is worth a visit. Carnbane West includes 15 cairns. One of the finest examples, Cairn L, is roofed and contains superb symbolic carvings in good condition. This group is some 2 km walk from the car park on gently sloping ground. Carnbane East includes Cairn T, also roofed and with excellent engravings, and is a shorter but steeper walk.

The Loughcrew Complex is a historical landmark in Ireland, located in Olcastle, Co.Meath and is part of Ireland’s Ancient East. The Loughcrew Complex is believed to have being constructed 3,500 B.C by our Neolithic ancestors as burial chambers. If we try to look for scientific evidence to back this up we find very little, nor will we find any account of archaeological works carried out at the Loughcrew Complex. Therefore we have created the first ever official website LoughcrewTombs.com to investigate and explore the many unexplained mysteries of Loughcrew that has been kept from all of us. If like us, and you question these chambers to be more than just burial grounds then I welcome you to join us as we explore and bring to light the real purpose of these magnificent monuments.

We have decided to explore and research this beautiful landscape to help everyone understand what our ancestors where trying to achieve here. We started this exploration when we discovered high amounts of Orgone Energy around the monuments and throughout the peaks of Loughcrew. Believing our Neolithic ancestors constructed these monuments to coincide with the natural energies of the earth. We aim using the latest technology and methods to prove this. We believe over the millenniums we have lost this knowledge and ancient technology which researchers like ourselves are starting to rediscover at major ancient sites worldwide
