Jump to: navigation, search

Five kilometers from the village of Carron, in County Clare, you will find Poulnabrone Dolmen (known as Clare's Rock).

This ancient portal tomb dates to the Neolithic period, 3200 BC. It comprises a tabular capstone supported by two slender portal stones, bordered by a nearby cairn.

While it is one of over 150 dolmens in Ireland, it's magnificence means that it is one of Ireland's most photographed monuments.

As a resting place of the first farmers of the Burren, it is a mystical place to wind down after a long day in the scenic surroundings of this unique landscape.
