A prehistoric tomb, dating from the Irish Neolithic period

The dolmen consists of 2 rocks supporting an imposing stone table weighing 35 tons and measuring 2.50 metres in length. With the weight, the supporting rocks have clearly sunk into the ground over time.

The dolmen is the entrance to a 15-metre long cairn, covered with small white stones, which was once used as an entrance to prehistoric tombs where bones and pottery were stored.

The chamber faces north and is part of a larger ensemble, which you can easily guess by walking around the dolmen.

The site is magnificent, and truly imposing. A must see!
