Very interesting. Quiet and stunning views. Well worth a visit. The stone circle is in a boggy field and I would suggest to wear hiking boots or wellies.

Surprisingly tricky to find if you don't know the area because the signage loses interest before you're even close, although it picks up again after a break! Perhaps as a result, you'll almost certainly have the stone circle to yourself. The area around the access...More

A small stone circle overlooking Bantry Bay. A circle of stones with 2 large standing stones. There is also a cairn on the site. Worth a visit for the views alone.
