The south side of the wedge tomb. This is the best side to look at it.


The day we visited the Gleninsheen tomb was a very bad day. It was pouring rain and it was very windy.
I walked for 150 metres in a strong wind and walking on those slippery Burren limestone pavements was a real jeopardy, but I did it.
The tomb is in very poor conditions and almost nothing is left to see. The more complete side is the south one, where the horizontal slab is. It's 3.50 metres long and 1 metre tall. The whole tomb is 1.80 metres wide and it's aligned almost east-west, actually it faces east at 80°.
On the north side there's a broken slab.
