Set in the landscape of the Burren this is a MUST SEE! This is a stark reminder of the first people that likely were in this region. Definitely reminded me of sacred sites in Wales and a much much smaller scale Stonehenge.

Poulnabrone Dolmen reminded me of Stonehenge but on a much smaller scale. Well worth a visit though! I love that the barren Burren landscape adds to its already mystical nature.

Being into archaeology this was an amazing place for me to visit. It was really nice also to have very few visitors there as it was snowing a little. I wish I could have spent more time there

It is amazing to see this Dolmen and consider how thousands of years ago they erected the huge heavy stones without modern machinery. The Burren it is located in is interesting too because it is so different to the green seen elsewhere. We were there...More

It was a bit smaller than we thought, but nevertheless amazing to see. It's nice to walk around if the weather's good.

Poulnabrone Dolmen - rock formation in the shape of the Pi sign. It was ancient tomb that must have been a challenge to make considering how big the stones were. If you can avoid the bus traffic it can be be very serene .
