​The Corlea Trackway Visitor Centre interprets the significance of an iron age bog road dated to the year 148BC, which crosses the boglands of Corlea, close to the river Shannon.

Highlighting the importance of the Corlea Bog site in archaeological terms the visitor centre is a major attraction in the Midlands of Ireland. Built on the exact axis of the trackway, a boardwalk across the bogland follows the course of the remaining road buried within the bog. Inside the centre, an 18meter stretch of the preserved road is on permanent display. 

Exhibits include information on Iron Age trackways, archaeology and bog culture. An excellent audio visual presentation relates the fascinating connections of Corlea Trackway to our ancient myths and Celtic centres of power.
