I think this is the only portal tomb in County Kerry, so this alone justifies a visit. It lies in a field close to a minor road so parking is a bit tricky, I used a driveway of a nearby house.

At my time of visit, two very pushy horses were on the field of the tomb, so I had always one eye on the horses, while the other tries to takes a closer look. The capstone is really impressive with some indentations. With the two tilted portal stones it reminds me a lot of Arderawinny tomb in County Cork.
