Not much to say about a stone circle... it is what it is, though you can't help but wonder why and how it is there. Worth the five minute stroll or of town for a bit of peace and quiet.

We walked to the circle after dinner only to find the gate locked and the area closed. It was still early and very light out so we were disappointed. The next day we returned to Kenmare and went here right away before dinner. There is...More

This was a great place to visit right on the edge of town. It’s easily accessible by foot a short distance from the main streets. Beautiful setting with much history.

MEGALITHIC IRELAND: A circle of pine trees encircle this 3000 year old stone circle in Kenmare. I am on the burial boulder in the center. Ah, ritual and ceremonial purposes.

I don’t know that I would go to Kenmare just for the circle, but once there, you can’t miss it. First, it is a lovely walk from the middle of town. Then, once you’re there, it is a peaceful walk in a lovely yard with...More

The Stone Circle was amazing. We went as the sun was setting and the whole area was just gorgeous. It was quiet and peaceful. This is a must see.

Very short walk from the town of Kenmare. Incredible Stone Circle. Must visit if you are staying in Kenmare and worth a stop if you are passing through.

This stone circle is worth a walking diversion off the main street area of Kenmare. It’s 5 minutes down a road of houses. Pay €2 at the honesty box and go down a lane to the circle of stones dating ~2,500 yrs ago. Fascinating to...More
