This was a cold January day, but there was still a security guy there, and the signs and parking were well laid out and well maintained. The Burren is fascinating, and the tomb here is worth the visit, it gives you quite a perspective of history.

It is wonderful to see an ancient structure still in place after so many centuries. It seems almost impossible that it could survive so long, humbling and made me forget any small discomforts from the wet and cold weather.

In my opinion another of the not to missed sights on the west coast of Ireland. Located in The Burren and the history is somewhat humbling in a way to think back the thousands of years that a place like this represents in human history.

The Barrett Tour bus got us to this historic site. I loved the burren area and the amazing topography of stones by nature. I walked around the dolman three times and loved the stark landscape. Amazing.

At least it is mysterious to me! We didn't have a guide, but we did read the signs on the path to the dolmen. One must wonder about the thinking of the makers of this edifice. It is very isolated and quiet there which for me just heightens the sense of otherness from a time we seem to know little... More

We arrived early, before any other tourists, and wandered out to see the dolmen. The rocky ground takes a bit of a sure foot to navigate, but not too difficult. This ancient entry to a 5000 year old buriel ground takes a little imagination to see the ground that covered it before it washed away. But it's there, out in... More

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
