This was interesting for a brief stop along your way elsewhere. It is a gathering place in history for the local communities through the ages. Hard to believe they could create something like this without modern day equipment.

This is the first stop on the Lough Gur trail. It is well signposted, and it is free to visit. There is a good information board there.

The circle is to roughly 4 thousand years old. It was in a beautiful setting and easy to get to. We went early in the morning and had it all to ourselves. If your into ancient religious places, this is a must see.

The stone circle is a short drive from Kilfinane and dates back to 2000BC. Historians think stone age people used the stone circle as a ring around their homes and protect their community.

Worth a stop if you're driving on the country road from the Lough Gur Heritage Center to Limerick. "The Grange" is a large earthen henge/berm, about 45' in diameter with huge boulders encircling the perimeter. It dates from the Stone Age, and was used probably...More
