Knockeen Dolmen – Fáilte Ireland

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.
