The Knockeen Dolmen is an Irish dolmen located near Knockeen in County Waterford. This dolmen is one of the largest Neolithic buildings in the area, and is considered one of the most beautiful in the country!
The Knockeen dolmen consists of 5 megaliths supporting 2 main tables. These 5 retaining stones are up to 2.8 metres high.
The dolmen forms a complex 3.5 metres high and 2.1 metres wide. The chamber thus formed is almost airtight and was once used as a burial place. It is also where the remains of clan chiefs were deposited, as well as many everyday objects (pottery, arrowheads, weapons, etc.)
It should be noted that over time, vegetation has gradually invaded the stone, which gives it a little extra charm. It is possible to visit it, but be careful of the proximity of an electrified barrier.
