Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

we were disapointed to read this review just to let this person know that this land is privately owned.we have the upkeep of the road currently being resurfaced, pathways to the stone circle,famine house,hut site,boulder burial and the fulacht fiadh to maintain and two car parks and insurance. we are not funded in any way so its all out of our own pockets.we have a honesty box at the entrance to the stone circle but unfortunetly it dosent help.this issue is going on a long time.hopefully this explains why we have to charge a fee.

Have visited many times in the past. Beautiful location with wonderful view. until today, someone sitting in a cattle trailer with hand written sign asking for 5 euros per person. Absolutely ridiculous and complete rip off. They should be ashamed of themselves charging tourists like this.

This was my 4th or 5th visit to this magical place - the views from the stone circle are stunning and it is a place that tends to draw many of us back again and again. The Gleninchaquin waterfall makes a dramatic backdrop to the stone circle and is also worth a visit although the lane is narrow and sometimes passing another vehicle can be tricky. Worth the effort though. Besides the main circle, there is also an upper circle, some distance beyond the famine cottage and farm and up a bit of a climb, but again well worth the effort. Look forward to my next visit.

Stunning stone circle in a very atmospheric isolated location. Well worth a visit, the approach road is narrow.

This circle is set in an incredible valley, with a nice waterfall in the distance. It started to rain so our visit was short. There was one sheep to greet us and pose (so it seemed) - so you will be walking through fields with sheep. Its a bit off the beaten path but I think it is really worth the visit.

A little off the beaten path...which is what we were looking for. You literally drive through sheep pastures. Be sure to close the gate as you enter the property. The circle is a short walk from the car park. Beautiful views.

I have to admit that we only called in here after driving to Gleninchaquin Park and finding it unexpectedly closed. I am so glad that we decided to visit this site on the way back to the main road.
The circle itself is a short walk from the parking area and is stunning with a wonderful backdrop of mountains, lakes and waterfalls.
If you are able, do walk the km or so up to the boulder burial site and fulacht fia site, well-signposted but a bit muddy when we visited.
Well worth the small contribution of €4.

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. As stone circles go this has to be the best. It's situation is
stunning between two lakes.

There is a short drive off the main road along a one lane road to reach this stone circle. Google maps helped us to find it. A box is set up to collect an entrance fee that allows one to see the stone circle and a famine cottage made of stone. The views are lovely and require only a short stroll on nearly flat ground.

This was the high point of our latest trip to Ireland. We had researched stone circles and wanted to see this one. We stayed in Ballydavid, Ireland on the Dingle Peninsula and it was a short drive from our B&B to Killarney then on to the Uragh Stone Circle. You must navigate a very narrow road with pull-offs if you meet an oncoming car for about 3 miles but when you turn the corner it is like paradise. Sheep grazing the green hills, the over 4,000-year-old stone circle in a meadow surrounded by a lake, a stream, waterfalls and green grass with sheep grazing. It was so peaceful and you could go to the monument stones without fences and respect the age and the meaning of the circle. Certainly, an experience to always remember.
