Seven in total ... (that they have found so far) ..... Raison d'être ? ... not obvious. Some circles are in pairs, but not all (aligned to solstice .. or other astrological markers). Another theory is that they relate to comets. They date from the Bronze Age, around 3500 years ago. Maybe people are just 'overthinking it ?' maybe they... More

Once again drawn to the stones, this is the real history of this area 2000 BC! Visit on a good starlit night, groundsheet, gaze at the sky with virtually no modern intrusion. We are so fortunate to be able to still walk amongst the stones, unlike Stonhenge with it's roads, fences and charges for entry!

A hidden gem! Located between Omagh and Cookstown, well signposted off A505. Picnic benches and areas for barbecuing. A mini Stonehenge in Northern Ireland

A quiet place to view numerous small circles. Stay 30 minutes or three hours, then head to the Davagh Forest Definitely, take an umbrella.

Sorry this didn't rock my boat. Just a few rocks lying about in a big open field. Don't know enough about them.

I'm sure it's a historically significant site but forgive me for liking my stone circles to be more impressive then 2 guys and a wheelbarrow could manage. On the plus side most circles are in pairs which is more unusual and the setting is lovely.

Love this. There was re-enactment of the times by the Craic Theatre. Very spiritual. Also a very interesting talk by the Stone Circle expert. Thanks to Midulster Council for organising

Followed the signs leaving the Davagh Forest just to check it out. Interesting for a few minutes. Great for the true history or archeology crowd.

Beaghmore Stone Circles was an accidental find for us. Heading home from a days mountain biking on the nearby Davagh Forest Trails we past this site and the strange stone formations caught our eye. We had intended to pay a flying visit due to us being sweaty, tired and dirty from our days adventures but we spent quite a while... More
