Gaulstown Portal Tomb

Gaulstown Portal Tomb is one of Waterford's superb portal tombs that is a must see along with the others named below.

The capstone on this tomb is close to five meters in length and is about one metre thick. It rests on six upright stones and will give you many different images when viewed from all sides.

The fourth image is thought to be all that remains of a cist, the stone is very impressive itself
( I am a  little bit worried that I did not notice it on my first visit ).

If your in Waterford and close to Tramore the tombs of Gaulstown, Knockeen, Ballynageeragh and Dunhill are all worth checking out.
