tourismirelandScattered across the landscape of this island, portal dolmens stand stoic as relics of Neolithic times; a ghostly memory of millennia long since past, when these hulking, table-shaped slab frames were used as tombs for ancient man. To this day, it’s unknown how the huge stones – sometimes weighing up to 100 tonnes! – were manoeuvred into position. Here at Poulnabrone dolmen, many thousands of years ago, 33 people were buried amidst the strangely alien landscape of the Burren in County Clare: a truly majestic final resting place.
