Ballykeel Dolmen is a neolithic tripod located in Newry, UK. Excavated and discovered in the 1900s, several items dating to the archaic age were found. Some of the items were types of pottery, sculptures and tool. The structure included much more to it, which can be said according to the design, but currently, a large stone roof on a tripod of walls is what we can see. It is also known as Hags Chair by the locals, and it is said to be more than 5000 years old! If you are interested in prehistoric sites, a visit here is a must!

Ballykeel Dolmen Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice well kept historical site.

  • A lovely dolmen, off the main raid set in a field with Slieve Gullion as a backdrop. It is easy to find althoigh not necessarily the most accessible as you have to cross a stile a cross a small field. It can however still be seen clearly from the road.

  • Love lovely view's

  • Excellent example off Mill Rd, Mullaghbawn, Newry. Drive slowly so as not to miss entrance, pity the information sign is covered with damp film making it almost impossible to read.

  • Easy to access from the road.
