Kilclooney, from the Irish meaning “church of the pasture”, is a coastal townland in northwest County Donegal.

The area is prominent for its concentration of court and portal tombs. In the Neolithic period, this land was fertile due to a warmer and drier climate.

The dolmen, which dates from circa. 3500 BC, is thought to be one of the best dolmens or portal tombs, if not the best, in Ireland.

The court tomb is located close to the portal tomb on a small hill that provides a commanding outlook in all directions.
