A place of interest to those who want to see one of the oldest Celtic crosses in Ireland Much visited but sadly ignored by locals and not given the profile it deserves by the tourist board

Interesting carved cross believed to date from the 7th century, located by the roadside outside Carndonagh. The cross and two tablets are under a protective structure. Well worth a stop if you are passing through Carndonagh.

Interesting archaeological site in the village, no fee to enter, with old church yard adjacent with more items to see. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Local info panel gives history of the cross.

Beautifully decorated crosses, but difficult to photograph. There is another cross in the graveyard which is well worth visiting.

The cross is easy to find and there is parking along side on the road. The cross itself is preserved from the elements by a roof built overhead. It's so cool that we can get to see history close up and take pictures and touch....More

Easy to access with parking just by the side. I visited close to 6pm so not much traffic in the area. It isn't bustling with visitors/holiday makers so you can get nice pictures of this site. The high cross is actually quite taller than I...More
