Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Gurteen Upper

Gurteen Upper

One of Waterford’s taller standing stones can be found hidden away in a coniferous forest. The Gurteen Upper stone, appearing as if it is almost growing out of a bank, stands 2.9 meters tall and has quite an impressive presence.

It is oriented ENE – WSW and gets increasingly wider to almost 1 metre the top.


Directions: From Clonmel travel on the R680 eastwards. After about 2.5km and just beyond a sharp bend to the right, take a right turn. A further 3km on you come to a right hand junction with radio transmitters on the opposite side. Directly opposite is a track leading into the woods. Follow this track and after two gates and about 300 metres you will see the stone on your left just before a bend.
