Temple of Deen

Temple of Deen

Northwest Ireland | County Donegal

Temple of Deen, also known as Druids Altar is the remains of court tomb located approx 2 km from Culdaff Village (towards Moville), on Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal. It stands on the top of small hill (known as "Black Hill"), on the right hand side of the road, and you can get there on the foot using a dirt road. The exact date of construction is unknown, because the proper excavations have not been carried out, but generally court tombs are amongst the oldest megalithic monuments in Ireland and began to appear around 4000 BC. All that survived from this court tomb is 8.5 m long, divided into two chambers, ruined gallery with the entrance from ESE. There are no visible remains of the court. Within easy reach, right across the road is situated another ancient monument, the Bocan Stone Circle
