This is a pretty stone circle with beautiful Kenmare Church and town in its backdrop. It is well worth taking some time to visit this beautiful sight in the gorgeous heritage town of Kenmare. These little treasures are the reason I love this country so much.

It is what it is. Not the best we've seen, nor the worst. It's a very short walk from the town centre. Easy to find, just follow the signs that say 'stone circle ' Stone circle, Cromwells bridge and coffee in an hour. Dropping into kenmare when in kerry should be on your to do list

Kenmare is a small stone circle but with interesting features. The center stone garners the most attraction. One can just imagine what uses it was put to. The city has surrounded it with trees and made somewhat of a park of it but that is to be expected so close to town. In addition one of the trees has been... More

This stone circle is off the path, very quaint and beautiful. It's located just a short walk outside of the town center, you might almost miss it, and worth the stroll.

This stone circle is easy to access right off the main street in Kenmare and is well taken care of. Maybe too much so, the careful landscaping takes away some of the eerie feeling you get at other stone circles.

When in Kenmare this is worth a walk-thru and 10-15 minutes of your time. The setting is a delightful, park-like experience, complete with well-trimmed lawn, nearby brook, and fenced in by a circle of trees. This juxtaposition of the Bronze age and the Georgian is fascinating. (If you build your town around a four thousand year old artifact, you can... More

The largest Bronze Age stone circle is only a short stroll from downtown Kenmare, but not signed until you get close to the lovely site. We arrived at sunset, perfect for photography and rather magical to witness as we had it to ourselves. Use the designated town parking lot and walk Market Street. We had to ask a local to... More

Two euros each entry into an honesty box to see about 12 stones in a clearing. We saw more interesting stone formations for free in the same region.

One huge annoyance is that there is no cut through between the bridge and the nearby stone circle:- you've just got to go all the way back and round. But it is worthwhile because this circle is a of human size that you can see easily in one sweep of the eyes, walk round in one minute. And feel awed... More
