Proleek Dolmen

The Proleek Dolmen is one of Ireland's best known and largest. Interestingly, it is located on what is now a fashionable golf course and resort, but the signage is good, and determined megalith hunters can find it with little difficulty.
Little remains of the great house that once anchored this

Nice grounds though

And rose garden

The signage was indeed good

But you still had to run a golf ball gauntlet

Finally, the allee couverte that accompanies the dolmen

Fellow megalith hunters

And, just a hundred yards away, the Proleek Dolmen

Right there near the 5th green


Non-country club environs

I have seen this sort of thing on golf courses in Brittany, but
always assumed they were just contemporary follies...
