I thought it was Plato that documented Atlantis. Or did he just have a more popular account of it?

Yes, however Dogger Bank, an island off the coast off Ireland sank around 6100 B.C

I may be pointing out the obvious here but Irelands not very sunken.
Erlingsson says: "Just like Atlantis, Ireland is 300 miles long, 200 miles wide, and widest over the middle. They both feature a central plain that is open to the sea, but fringed by mountains. No other island on earth even comes close to this description."
“What has led most students astray is that Atlantis sank in the sea”, says Dr Erlingsson. “It is an ‘Atlantic myth’ all right – but a myth from, not about, Atlantis”. "The island that sank was Dogger Bank. It was struck by a disastrous flood-wave around 6,100 BC, and now rests deep under the waves of the North Sea."
