  • A small, out of the the way, historical site. Nice poeple at the nearby fuel station gave me directions to the place and I'm glad I made the stop. It's picturesque and gave a nice view of the surrounding mountains.
  • It's a well preserved stone circle. Nothing much going on there but a nice setting, parking for one car and easy access for abled persons.
  • Another great megalithic place in Wicklow mountains area. Much bigger than Piper's Stones. Unfortunately there's not much space for parking.
  • Lovely place alot of magic in this land love it
  • Interesting 10 minute quick stop on the way somewhere else; enjoyable vista's. Very limited street parking, but does not appear to be a busy site. Well looked after area.
