Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Gibbet Hill

Gibbet Hill

This heavily pebbled conglomerate standing stone sits on the crest of a small hill at the entrance to a modern housing estate in Waterford City.

Stocky in profile, it measures 1.4 metres in height and is 1.2 metres wide at its base.

The stone is oriented in a N-S direction.


Directions: Enter Waterford City from the north via Rice Bridge. On crossing the bridge and going through the first traffic lights, continue straight upwards to the next traffic light junction.

Here turn right. Continue on this street for 1 km and then turn first left. The entrance to the housing estate is just 200m further up on the right side.
