Wattstown Barrows are located near the summit of Frewin Hill (173 m / 568 ft high), overlooking Lough Owel to the east.
Wattstown Barrows are a ring barrow and bowl barrow, burial sites of the Bronze Age, joined together by extending a bank and ditch from the ring barrow in an arc around the bowl barrow. There is also another bowl barrow and a tumulus or cairn.
According to legend, Frewin Hill was the site of the Battle of Frémainn in AD 507, where Failge Berraide defeated Fiachu mac Néill.
