Well worth visiting if only for the views alone!

The Labby Rock is located at Carrickglass Co Sligo in the groungs of Cromleach Lodge Hotel off the main Dublin Sligo Road at Castlebaldwin. It's really only a quick stroll from the hotel and the walk is tranquil and picturesque with stunning views of Lough Arrow and the Bricklieve Mountains. It's very quiet up there. You can almost hear the silence. On the way you pass by a ring fort.

The Labby Rock is reckoned to be Ireland's second largest portal tomb dating back to Neolithic times. Local legend says it is the burial place of Nuada who was King of the Tuatha De Dannan (an ancient Celtic people) who was killed at the Battle of Moytura by Balor of the Evil Eye. Labby is a derivation of the leaba which means a bed in the Irish language and this is why some folklore says it is were Diarmiad and Grainne slept whehn they were eloping and on the run from Fionn MacCumhail as Grainne was his wife.

The easy way to get there is to start out from the carpark of the hotel and follow the trail signs along the fence which will be on your left hand side. Continue along the path which meanders through the wood before it emerges close to Labby Rock. To get the most awesome views return via the pathway marked Labby Loop right back to the hotel. There is ample parking at the hotel and it's well worth the slight effort of getting there.

The Labby Rock or Carrickglass dolmen sits tucked in a shallow valley, an impressively massive portal dolmen: with a capstone weighing an estimated 70 tons, it is among the largest of such monuments in Ireland. The huge capstone measures about 5 x 3 x 1.5 meters, and was probably raised on site. There is a well formed portal at the front of the monument.
