  • 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 .
