...but unfortunately overflowing with tourists. I don’t recommend just traveling to the Dolmen on it’s own. But if you make it part of a drive trough the Burren with it’s surreal landscaping and the other interesting places around, you should definitely make a stop here.

This cool, stand-alone dolmen sits on the edge of the Burren. There is a small parking lot and a very brief walk to the site. It is roped off but you can get close to see it. Good signage for such a small site. A...More

I am big fan of archeology and history. This is a great find and it offers spectacular views. There aren't too many tourists who venture out there. There isn't a big gift shop or anything around. It is worth trekking to though.
