  • Of all the stone circles that we visited in Kerry and Cork, this one was the best. It is located in a farmer's field with a short walk. It does not have manicured lawns like the Kenmare stone circle. ...  more »

  • Accessible stone circle with explanation plaque. Lovely views all around. We were the only ones there so very peaceful to stop for a while.
  • While hiking in adds to the experience and creates beautiful backdrops at other stone circles in Kerry this one is very convenient for those less mobile. It's clearly signposted and has a hinged gate to enter. It's of a good size and height. I was lucky enough to find a cow and calf stand dead centre posing for photos when I was there.
  • Very cool location with a lot of history! Easy to get to but be careful if you drive since the road is very very narrow. Watch out for cow poop too!
  • Beatiful stone circle with easy access from Castletownbere (by car). Explanations about the circle are on a board nearby. There is no parking around, just one or perhaps two cars can park on one side of the road.
  • Beautiful stone circle, worth a visit. Not much space to park so walk if it's possible! Definitely a nice road to walk so well worth it.
