Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments
Ballybrack standing stone stands on a gentle west facing slope. This is yet another stone that has the beautiful picturesque backdrop of the Comeragh mountains to the east and the lesser rise of Crohaun Hill (above) to the north west.
The stone itself, an old conglomerate red sandstone is 1.5 metres high and is oriented in a N-S direction. It has a sloping crest when viewed directly from its east side.
Directions: From Kilmacthomas travel on the N25 towards Waterford City. After about 3.5 km take the third right turn (a crossroads at a pub). Almost 1 km up this road you come to the first big farmhouse on the right hand side. Here ask for permission and directions to the stone which is easily accessible and within sight of the farmyard.
