Burren National Park, Ireland: 34 reviews and 58 photos
The Poulnabrone-Dolmen is without doubt the most famous megalith tomb of Ireland. It dates back to the times of 2500 B.C. and still today scientists dont know exactely, how it was technically possible to build such heavy structures by the primitive tools of that time.
The Poulnabrone-Dolmen might easily be overseen, because it is not directely next to the road, but in a distance of maybe 300 meters - it is always the best to search for other cars and buses and follow their passengers - you will have to climb over a fence of a farm, it includes a small & easy stair ! When walking over the rocks of the Burren, try to listen to the strange sound it makes, when walking on these vulcanic rocks !
Address: County Clare
Directions: You will find Poulnabrone-Dolmen on your way from Ballyvaughan to Leamaneagh Castle, when taking road R480 !! Shortly after a bend you find parkings for only a few cars at both sides of the road !
