The Poulnabrone Dolmen was a highlight of our trip to County Clare, IRE. A must do and recommended sight to see. It is located in the Burren area of County Clare. Don't miss this. Landscape in this part of western Ireland is beautiful in a very different way. Hard to fathom that these stones are older than the pyramids of Egypt. Truly fascinating.

Very interesting historical site. We were apart of a tour group. thank goodness, there is no way I would have this area on my own. A must see.

We got incredibly lost trying to find this area, but it was worth the drive (between Cliffs of Moher and Galway). You don't get these bits of history just anywhere! Bring a good map as road signs are unheard of there!

I stayed at a B&B called the Burren that was close to the Dolmen. I got directions from my B&B, who were so very helpful, and then took off in my car. It was a wonderful adventure! In one day I saw the Cliffs of Moher and the Dolmen! It was a wonderful time!!!

Probably not the best place to visit if you have kids. They wouldn't get the interest of the area if they are below kindergarten age. Older kids would like it. Very interesting and gorgeous area. Very interesting for adults.
