Pretty impressive!
Aug 2021 • Couples
The dolmen firstly is open. Ignore the "reported closed".
To say how old this is, it's pretty impressive, especially when you consider the size of the slabs.
Unless you're a druid or witch, don't expect to spend more than 16 minutes there (that includes 7 minutes walk either way).
If you forgot to pick up that super special joss stick or candle or cheap pagan ring, don't worry. There is a stall there for your convenience.
Oh....and parking/viewing is free.

You can walk around here with a sense that your toes are really touching history!
We were there in the afternoon and there were very few around.
If you’re wandering through the burden it’s worth a stop.
The on-site guide gives an oral history which is interesting and comprehensive.
It’s a spot for great photos!

Megalithic tomb
Jul 2020
Situated close to Ballyvaughan and the Aillwee Caves, this is the best known of all the Megalithic tombs in the Burren. There is a small car park just off the road and then a very short walk upto the tomb. There are information broads provided for further background.

We drove here on the way to the Cliffs of Moer and were really surprised as to how different the area is from everything else we have seen in Ireland.

Fascinating neolithic memorial
Feb 2019
The Poulnabrone Dolmen is very easily accessed, being just situated just off the main road to Ballyvaughan. It dates from the Neolithic Period and is a mystical and atmospheric site. The rock bed nearer the Dolmen is a bit uneven, so perhaps not suitable for those unsteady on their feet, but for others get as close as possible to maximise the experience.

What a wee gem!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We were on our way to Aillwee when we just happened to drive past and just had to stop. What an amazing spot, the landscape of the Burren is bizarre and fascinating to start, and to then have such a magnificent artifact there in the open...wow!
In my honest opinion, this free attraction is better than Stonehenge and more than worth a stop - I can only imagine that it would be delightfully colourful with the wildflowers in spring and summer

Great place to explore.
Jul 2019
A little off the beaten track but an interesting place to explore with older children. The rocky ground presents plenty of ankle twisting fissures and car parking is limited but the dolmen is worth visiting.
