The summit of Knocknarea is known for its imposing Neolithic cairn and is also identified by the locals as Queen Maeve’s grave. In neighbouring Carrowmore, visitors will find the largest megalithic cemetery in Ireland. The county’s scenic coast has some excellent surfing beaches like Strandhill, Rosses Point, and Enniscrone. The Lissadell House is a good family attraction with a very beautiful beach nearby. It was once the home of Countess Markievicz. Many golf courses are also found in the county. Other activities for tourists include horse riding, cycling, fishing, and other water sports.
