There is just something other-worldly about seeing megalithic tombs up close.  Poulnabrone Dolmon, in the Burren, predates the Egyptian pyramids.  The top stone is about 6 feet off the ground and just over 30 feet long- it's big!  Around this area of the Burren you will find approximately 70 other tombs.

The Burren has more than stones!  Here are a few places to visit in the Burren.

  1. I would never have guessed it’s a tomb. Were the bodies just put inside the stones or buried beneath them?

      The bodies were buried beneath, but they say it was just the bones, so the flesh had been removed or decomposed before the bodies were placed in the dolmon.

    Hard to believe amazing sites exist like this in nature. Great photo.

    I mean I know they have logically figured out how these were done, but come on! That is pretty darn incredible. Those rocks are huge!

    Those are awesome! I love the angle that you captured.
