We went late in the day, so we missed the tour buses and caught the dolmen in different lights. I'm not gonna lie, it's not the easiest drive out there and it seems like it's in the middle of nowhere, it is. But, if you...More

Visited Poulnabrone Dolmen with my family and we had a great time exploring and reading up on both the Dolmen and the fauna and flora of the Burren. There are plenty of walking tracks and other historical sites around also which invite for further exploration.

It’s amazing to see something that has been around for years. To think about what people did in ancient times. It’s a marvel to see stone situated when there wasn’t modern machinery and to imagine how the people accomplished the task.

It's off the beaten path and the only thing to see in this part of the Burren. Some great views driving through the Burren and free parking when you get there. It's well preserved and worth the detour if you are into the history aspect...More

We visited the site today and really enjoyed it. The parking is free and a 5 minute walk to the portal. It’s well preserved with a small, unobtrusive rope around it to keep it safe from visitors. You can get very close to it however....More

This was a great stop for photo ops on our way to the cliffs. It won't take a lot of time to see it all but a great place to stretch your legs and to see something 4000 years old.

Once again we chose to visit early in the day. It was going to be a hot day, but early on it was a little grey. The light was just wonderful for photographs, and the solitude and the peace made it feel almost mystical.

Poulnabrone Dolmen is a striking portal tomb dating back to 2500 - 2000BC. Plenty of parking, information boards leading up to the tomb. Lovely and peaceful Roads to and from there are a little scary so just take your time.
