Cabaragh Wedge Tomb is situated on a level tract of rocky reclaimed pasture below the steeper southern slopes of the Ox Montains, in Coolaney County Sligo.

Cabaragh Wedge Tomb, in Coolaney County Sligo, is a great example of a wedge tomb. It is situated on a level tract of rocky reclaimed pasture below the steeper southern slopes of the Ox Mountains. A thin layer of peat has grown up on parts of the monument.

The site has excellent views to the south with Knocknashee being the most prominent hill. Other wedge tombs can be found in the vicinity at Cabaragh, and at Gortakeeran, both of which are well preserved. The structure is well preserved, although the front part of the gallery no longer has a roof. It consists of a gallery, 7.7m long, surrounded by a straight sided outer wall.
