We followed the GPS from our hotel in Belfast, and the only problem we had was that some large tree branches were down from the winds the day before. The turnoff to the Giant's Ring was okay, but there was a large branch down in...More

Everyone has heard of the Giant’s Causeway, but this is well within striking distance of Belfast. It’s a really fascinating henge, which is probably pre-Druid. It’s off the beaten track, and quite secluded, so be sure to have the phone number of a taxi firm,...More

Interesting circular henge surrounding a stone burial chamber, pleasant walk and excellent picnic site, especially with children. Adjacent car park, no charge.

Not a large site, but there is a small dolmen surrounded by an earthen ring. Nice for a walk about. You can see a few other dolmen from the top of the ring. Free.

When in Ireland, Scotland and England you will have many opportunities to visit Neolithic sites. No one knows what they really are or who really made them. Theories abound, but no proof. From the smallest to the largest they are strange and magical places. This...More

Don't miss seeing this historic site. Incredible that it remains and has not been razed by previous generations. A simple reminder of the ancient history of this area and its people.

I love the scale of this Neolithic monument, the views of Belfast Hills in a westerly direction and patchwork of landscape in others. Today I smiled at the irony of spuds growing in nearby fields. Again, irresponsible dog owners let the area down.
