The Centre interprets an Iron Age bog road that was built in the year 148 B.C. across the boglands of Longford, close to the River Shannon. The oak road is the largest of its kind to have been uncovered in Europe and was excavated by Professor Barry Raftery of University College Dublin. Inside the interpretive centre, an eighteen - metre stretch of the preserved trackway is on permanent display in a hall specifically designed to preserve the ancient wooden structure. Bord na Mona and the Office of Public Works have carried out conservation work on the surrounding bog to ensure that it remains wet and the buried road remains preserved.

Last admission 45 minutes before closing. Centre is fully accessible for visitors with disabilities.

Open early April  to Late September Daily 10am – 6pm
