Ireland is dotted with many awe inspiring monuments, one of the most famous being the ancient Poulbrone Portal Tomb.  The name literally means “The hole of sorrows” and a visit to this famous dolmen grave will allow you a glimpse back into history . 

This Dolmen has stood proudly and dominant on the burren landscape for thousands of years, the site dating back to about 2500 BC.  The history of this tomb has been well documented and records the many artefacts found during excavation work.

History links this site to the legend of Diarmuid and Grainne, the ill-fated lovers who crisscrossed Ireland hiding by day and night in their attempt to evade Grainne’s pursuing scorned betrothed.
