From Dublin, we headed south to Glendalough located in the picturesque Wicklow mountains. Glendalough Monastery has one of the few surviving completely intact round towers in Ireland.

Browne's Hill Dolmen

Heading back to the west coast, one of our stops was at the Browne's Hill Dolmen just outside of the town of Carlow. This dolmen has the largest capstone of any dolmen in Europe, weighing over 100 tons. It is believed to have been constructed over 4000 years ago. As you can see from the picture, it has partially collapsed.
