This stone circle is over 3000 years old & the only one so close to a town. The 15 stones set in a circle may have been a ritual site, burial ground or calendar. No one really knows for sure. The stone circle is on...More

Don't miss this stone circle while you are in Kenmare. I was there 3 times and only a few people trickle through. You can easily walk here from town.
