General information

Knockmany Passage Grave

The covering cairn in its present form is modern, added to protect the stones from weathering and vandalism. Excavation showed that a stone cairn capped with earth within a stone revetment originally covered the burial chamber. The passage of the ‘classic’ passage tomb is absent but several of the stones forming the chamber are decorated with characteristic passage tomb art, including circles, spirals and zigzags. One of the best examples of this art in the north.

There is access to the mound at all times, and a general view of the stones can be had through the gate of the chamber. There is no regular arrangement for unlocking the chamber. Prospective visitors who wish to examine the stones in detail should contact NIEA to arrange for the chamber to be opened.

Opening times
