Part of large network of parks along river. The place is well known from centuries ago. Would not recommend to arrange as dedicated trip as there is nothing special to see. The set of stones have been constructed most recently and looks like modern construction rather something from the ancient past. However it is nice to see as part of... More

Recently attended an out door movie screening here in association with Belfast Film Festival. What a cool venue for a movie and what a great historic find

Five thousand years ago Neolithic man walked these paths through forest and glen to this site. Veneration for the dead had become part of life. This was a site for burial in a chambered tomb under these upright stones with their huge capstone. And then covered ritually. A chieftain? It was likely to have been a meeting place for who...

Visited during visit to Belfast. Added to our plan at the very end but it's worth it. Almost within Belfast. Good place for some nice photography.

Although its an ancient monument the car park of this place is more famous than the monument itself. Its notorious with dogging and cruising and is best avoided at night as its very secluded. The standing stones are at the centre of a huge earth ring which is set in some lovely arable countryside and walking around here can be... More

It is a huge area..... with earthworks all round. Great for photos just check on google. You can walk round the top of the earthworks and get a wonderful view of the countryside. I have been here several times and have never seen any 'outside activity'. I would say it is well worth a visit especially on a misty cold... More

This is an amazing ancient site about an hour walk from Belfast city center. The walk out is wonderful and the setting is amazing. The site has an ancient energy and a quiet majesty. There is a nice view of the surrounding countryside and the site is virtually deserted. There is a dolmen and a tree of life! I agree... More

Theres not much here to be honest, and its not very well sign posted. I have read unfortunately people are using this place for dogging. Would I recommend this place .............no just go on Internet and read about it there, really not much to see here either. People walking their dogs, but not very impressed with the place.

This is a well known spot for outdoor sexual activity amongst gay men and dogging. It would be a nice place for a walk only for this behaviour that goes on.You will be followed. Don't go near it!
