We visited the Dolmen on a wet day and were greeted by an Irishman at the gates who was crafting jewellery. Total dude, he had the patter to go with his wares and was a very entertaining and intelligent man. He's not a guide but just selling his stuff...which was pretty nice too. The Dolmen is an interesting place to... More

This was cool! The surrounding area is interesting too. Worth going to especially since there is another cool sight just down the road.

We had a car and just passed by. This was a very nice visit, amazing how these stones are just still the same how they were years ago! The Burren is nice to see as well.

We visited the dolmen as it is interesting to see something standing in open space for so long time and do not regret visiting. However, there is not much more to see than what you see on one picture.

the landscape here is more stone than earth, very interesting but quite surreal though. the dolmen is interesting to see, it has a special energy as well. photographers may take nice pictures, especially at night because the area has no light pollution.

We came with the family as part of our Ireland tour. It was easily found with decent signage on the way. We were lucky in that we arrived before the massive crowds that come with the bus tours. The dolmen itself is interesting but it is the surrounding landscape and flora that is something to behold.

See a stone monument built over 5000 years ago. Believed to be made before the pyramids of Egypt. An incredible feat considering the tools of the time. Steeped in history in a section of the burren with beauty only understandable if you have seen it. Ancient history no more than 5 feet in front of you.

The scenery on the drive to Poulnabrone is stunning in itself but the portal tomb is something else. The information at the site is good and you can walk around it getting a clear appreciation for our ancestors' ability to create something from nothing. Well worth a visit!

Thank methenomad
