"Poulnabrone Dolmen" Burren National Park Tip by JonED

Burren National Park, Ireland: 34 reviews and 58 photos


There are dolmens (megalithic tombs) all over Ireland, but Poulnabrone is one of the best known and most visited. Bodies of more than 20 people were discovered in the tomb, along with tools, jewelry, and fragments of pottery.

There is no admission fee or visitor center, just a panel displaying some interpretive information. A rope barrier surrounds the dolmen, preventing visitors from touching or entering it.

Busloads of tourists often stop at this site; if you happen to arrive when a bus is present, wait a few minutes because the tourist groups are usually just making a brief stop there and won't stay long.
