Nice piece of history. A gem tucked away in the Glanworth countryside. Amazing to think our forefathers went to such trouble to build so long ago. It’s right beside the roadway so no treking involved. You need to know where you’re going to find it. Written history of the site on plaque nearby telling the origins and date of the tomb and when excavated. It’s know locally as Labacallee or in English as the hags bed. Access is over a stone style to get right into the tomb or if you’ve mobility issues bes to view from the road.

We were driving along when we happened upon the Labbacallee Wedge Tomb; pulled over to explore this piece of ancient history :)

Off the beaten path, diamond in the rough, historically significant wedge tomb. This was a short but interesting visit.

Labbacallee wedge tomb is over 4,000 years old and for that reason is worth a visit. You must climb over a wall, so not ideal if you are not a little bit fit. Its an interesting landmark due to the history of it, but outside of the couple of slabs of rock, there is nothing else to see or do.

Set off on the side of the road, there is no bus loads of tourists or gift shops. It sits on the edge of a farmer's Field. Ancient portal tomb it is facinating to see.

An interesting site, on the side of a rather quiet back road. Good information presented at the site - would love to have more info regarding the heritage trail that this site forms part of in the local area.
If megaliths are your thing, this one should be visited.

We seriously got lost as the directions on Tripadvisor and asked directions from a local gentleman. It's not on the R512 it's on an off road at the sharp curb on the right and mile into it. Lovely structure I was definitely happy to be able to say I've been to and seen the Labbacallee Wedge Tomb.

Unbelievable, steeped in history, overlooking the river Funcheon, and the 12th century village of Glanworth, home to the Roche, Condons, and Glangibbon clans of that era.

The Hag's Bed would have been erected during the early Bronze Age around 1500 BC. This wedge shaped gallery grave is the finest of it's type in the country. It was excavated in 1934 and fragments of bone and pottery were found. The existence of this tomb, it's close proximity to Glanworth and other ancient finds would suggest the area has many other ancient monuments, yet to be explored.

Labbacallee (the Hags Bed) is a marvel. A wonderful, seemingly untouched, Neolithic wedge tomb. To step over the stile and stand beside this wonder is to go back in time, to touch these stones is to touch prehistory.
