Ireland has many ancient ruins including quite a few stone circles. Drombeg Stone Circle was a highlight in that category for me. Drombeg is a recumbent stone circle, one where there are two upright portal stones which form a sort of entrance and then directly...More

The stones are completely accessible i.e. Not fenced off like other sites. The site was difficult to find with the GPS we resorted to asking a person walking their dog for directions. The circle has a 9 m diameter so is quite small However, as...More
