  • A very easy stop by the side of the road and you can step back to 3000 years BC. There are helpful signs to give you the history and context of activity at this location and why this tomb was built. A...  more »
  • Of the bay are to be had from this site, plenty of park, and a short walk to the site. Any thing that old is definitely worth a look (whilst driving the WAW).  more »
  • Fine for a 15 m stopping for a nice picture of the tomb and the surrounding area. You can be done through a walkway toward the cliff walk where you have a beautiful view over the Atlantic sea.

  • Atmospheric location on the Wild Atlantic Way, steeped in sacred ritual and honoured through the ages . The wedge tomb at Altar is part of our history, culture and tradition. It is easily accessible with the convenience of a small car park adjacent. Children should be accompanied by adults for safety as the rocky shoreline is elevated and exposed.
  • Great place to see. Beatifull rock formations nearby. Lovely view.
  • Nice view of the region. The altar stones are also interesting and have a interesting story behind it. Stones are smaller than i expected though.
  • Lovely peaceful place for some quiet reflection. Small cove and beach nearby for a swim
  • Well kept and very interesting . Beautiful views .
