Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments
On an east facing slope overlooking the Annestown Stream, this portal tomb (which could possibly be classified as a "Boulder Dolmen") is totally dominated by its large bulbous capstone which rests on one orthostat and a pile of small stones.
It doesn’t have the typical Dolmen like profile of other portal tombs, but nonetheless is quite impressive due to the capstone which measures 4m x 2.7m and weighs around 30 tonnes.
Directions: From Waterford City take the N25 for Cork. Just before coming into Kilmeaden take the R681 veering left at a garage. About 4.5 km on take a left turn for Dunhill. On reaching Dunhill village go straight through keeping the pub and church on your right. A few hundred meters over this road you will see the monument in a field on the left just beyond farm buildings.
