This was such a cool spot, even just the surrounding area too. No charge to get in. I loved all the information boards.It was very cool trying to comprehend just how old this place was.

Just a few meters from the parking lot you find yourself on a stony field with this impressive Dolmen. There is not much else to see, only some explanations and a rugged landscape around you. Open 24 hours and free.

This was my fourth trip to Ireland and 3rd time to visit the dolmen. The last 2 times were in winter and the Burren was definitely barren. I didn’t recognize the Burren at first. It looks so totally different when greened and in bloom. The...More

It's a short walk in from the parking area, Watch your step on the uneven rock (burren) surface. There are various sign boards explaining it.

Set in the landscape of the Burren this is a MUST SEE! This is a stark reminder of the first people that likely were in this region. Definitely reminded me of sacred sites in Wales and a much much smaller scale Stonehenge.

Poulnabrone Dolmen reminded me of Stonehenge but on a much smaller scale. Well worth a visit though! I love that the barren Burren landscape adds to its already mystical nature.

As it seemed we were driving in the middle of nowhere we suddenly find ourselves at this famous site. It happened to be a beautiful day and someone was playing traditional Celtic music on the grounds. It was nice to get up close and to...More
