Gleninsheen Wedge Tombs are two tombs with prehistoric importance. While one is intact, the other is partly disintegrated. Both are located in the Burren area. They are one among the eighty sights where such late Neolithic and early Bronze Age tombs have been found. An ornament dating back from 800 to 700 BC was also found here, which is now displayed in the National Museum of Ireland. Almost all such structures that have been discovered seem to face the setting sun at south west, thus, it would seem that this was of significance to the builders at that time. An incredible sight and a must visit, do plan your trip here at the earliest.
