Brownshill Dolmen, Carlow

A field monument of huge proportions, the capstone is believed to be the largest in Europe. The location, setting and purpose of this Megalithic structure have been the subject of conjecture for centuries. Most likely it marks the burial place of a local king of long ago but has been invested with a rich overlay of myth and legend. Access is direct from signposted carpark. Please obey the country code.

Address:   Rathvilly Road, Carlow, County Carlow
