You can walk up and touch this ancient structure. Parking is provided nearby. Well worth a visit by history n culture buffs 👍.

It is in the middle of the field, with a small path provided towards it. It is a good place to stop by, read the information boards and take a few pictures, however, there is nothing much else to do besides that.

My wife and I recently viewed the Brownshill Dolmen whilst driving through Ireland and it was a great little rest stop. There’s a few displays explaining the history of the Dolmen and it is a nice short walk to get out to the Dolmen itself....More

Worth a quick visit. I'd recommend stopping at the nearby Maxol for a cheeky chicken fillet roll on the way home

A piece of ancient historical features that will amaze you with the scale! Goes back 5,000 years and will amaze you at the technical abilities of ancient man.

No place to pull over and go for a look. Old standing rocks as shown in the picture in the middle of a pasture.

Worth a look if you're in the area. There's a few other sights of interest locally. Including another dolmen and a stone circle. We took in a few of them one after the other. There's parking at this one which is handy.
