Our family enjoyed the easy walk to the portal tomb. The wildflowers made the experience special. We purchased jewelry from the Celtic craftsman.

Excellent views all around, and a very interesting place to visit. An easy walk from a nearby parking lot to the 5000 year old burial site. This is a must see!

Lovely views, great photo spot...but as far as the actual ancient tomb you can find better ones in Ireland. Still--the Burren is magical!

This place is very special and we were glad to have visited on our recent trip. It's like nothing else you've probably seen before. I recommend paying it a visit.
