Poulnabrone Dolmen, Burren: 8 reviews and 18 photos
The so-called Poulnabrone-Dolmen is one of the most famous sights of Ireland and you will see it in many postcards that you can buy in every part of Ireland. That is also the reason why thousands of tourists are visiting the Burren every month. This Dolmen dates back to 2500 B.C. and still today the scientists do not know exactely, how it was possible for the people of these ancient times to be able to build such heavy structures by their primitive tools.
The Poulnabrone-Dolmen is not directely next to the road, but in a distance of maybe 300 meters so it might easily be overseen: it is always the best to search first for other cars and buses that are parked in the middle of nowhere and follow their passengers - you will have to step / climb accross a fence of a farm, it includes a small & easy stair !
Directions: You will find Poulnabrone-Dolmen on the way from Ballyvaughan to Leamaneagh Castle, when you take the road R480 !! Shortly after a bend you find parkings for only a few cars at both sides of the road !
