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

Stone circle constructed centuries BC. Short walk from Kenmare town center- we did in a cold torrential down pour but well worth the effort.

A (very) short walk from the center of town, The Stone Circle is an amazing sight to behold. It is easily accessible, and one may even touch the stones. There is an honour box to collect your 2 Euro admission fee. Worth seeking out just to imagine how it got there and what was its' purpose. Great photo op.

Certainly is not Stone Hedge, but it was interesting. It was not crowded and after 2 couples left, we walked around and took photos all alone.

You don't need much time for this. Make a quick stop by snap a few pictures and enjoy the rocks and wonder what they were used for and why they were put here...
