Scale: Capstone 6 tons
Note: The Gaulstown Dolmen is the “Mercedes Benz of Dolmens”, located in a hidden glade on a beautiful hill, southwest of Waterford, Ireland. Even the iconographic Poulnabrone Dolmen, several hundred miles away in The Burren, pales in comparison to this structure. The Capstone is 6 tons, balanced on five minor slabs. It is only a brief walk from the back-road to enter the glade where it sits. Locally this hill is known as “Hags Hill” where a magic-weaving witch once dwelt away from town. Also known as a “portal tomb” this megalithic masterpiece has stood for over 5000 years! It’s streamline look, with a frontal aerodynamic point on the Capstone, reveals an incredible sense of style, along with wonderful crafting, and engineering. How exactly this was achieved is not yet known. This is a truly magical and enchanted place, and absolutely sacred. I shared this experience with my family, and was easily one of the best days of my life. This is a must see for hikers, anthropologists, and photographers alike.
