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.

The circles date back to 2000 BC and are well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is one main circle which is easily accessable and a number of smaller ones which are harder to get to.

We just don't have these kinds of ancient and revered sites in the US, so I made it a point to find a few stone circles and wedge tombs. This one is right off the roadway and you have to go through a couple anti-cattle...More

We were the only people there...had the place to ourselves except for the cows. The farmer who owns the land charges a small fee to walk around. The circle is 2000-2500 BC and well worth the trip. We also stopped at the Lough Gur Wedge...More
