The place is very quiet and it suits the situation when I start my first steps to see the tomb. I took my time and had no rush to see it, I read each story signs through the way. Which I believe everyone should do, to immerse into history. When I got to the landmark I was in awe. To... More

We stopped to visit this site and it was amazing to think just how old this place was and the cultural significance I chatted to the security guard about the issue they had with young vandals defacing this national treasure

We visited Poulnabrone Dolmen when visiting the Burren last June, and just the sheer age of the structure makes it worthwhile. It's also beautiful, and has such history. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and wove the story of this place into the history of the Burren. Very fascinating place.

Unusual stone formation in the Burren. I had heard lots about it. Found it eventually as it is in a remote location.

Dating back to 3000 B.C., this suspected “doorway to heaven” is a small but impressive stone structure quite literally in the middle of nowhere. If you are adventurous, you can find it on your own. We included it on our excursion to the Cliffs of Moher but needed some luck to located it. (On your GPS head to coordinates Latitude:... More

This is a wonderful free geological phenomenon that you should spend some time at if you are in the area between Galway and The Cliffs of Moher.

If you're in western ireland you should visit this as it's in the burren area and not far from the cliffs of moher. This is actually a burial site and is best respected. It's cordoned off so you can't actually touch the stones a bit like stonehenge but nevertheless is great to see. It's in a very calm and peaceful... More

Polunabrone Dolmen is located along the Corrofin Road in Co Clare and is easily one of the mos accessable dolmen in Ireland. It's also considered to be Ireland's most photographed megalithic monument. There is a car park nearby. A lot of people visit the dolmen and while we were there in June there was a steady stream of visitors.
