A bit of a drive off the main road, but if you are like me just roadtripping around without too tight a schedule it's worth the drive. You park and then take a 5 minute walk up a gentle hill to the circle. It has lovely things to see on the walk as well as the top. There is a cute stone jetty just down the road...was very peaceful sitting on there drinking my flask of tea in the sun.

The Uragh stone circle and the cloonee lakes close by are an amazing natural location. There is a beautiful walk on which you can see a lot of historical sights and the landscape is very pure and close to nature. Absolutely loved spending some time there.

While driving around the Beara Peninsula we found the Uragh Stone Circles by accident. It was very exciting as I had only been to Stonehenge a few weeks ago. It looked like a mini Stonehenge but in a much more scenic spot . Right beside Lough Inchiquinn. Stone circles were constructed as ritual and ceremonial sites during the Bronze Age. Studies have shown that a line through the entrance and across the axial stone is orientated on significant solar and lunar events and on some of the brighter stars. The road is off the main road and is about 2 mile of windy narrow road but worth the drive.

Uragh fairy stone circle is beautifully situated on a small hillock between lough Cloonee Upper and Lough Inchiquinn. The monument consists of a 5-stone circle with all the stones roughly the same height and tangentially placed. There are 2 portal stones, 2 side stones and the axial stone. This enormous monolith is at least 3 metres high and totally dominates the monument. It is set radially to the circle aligned along the NE-SW axis. The views from here are gorgeous as it is set against a back drop of mountains, lakes and waterfalls. The owner of the property asks for a donation for the upkeep of the site. The trail to the stone circle is a dirt/gravel one. The road to the stone circle is very narrow, pretty much 1 lane, so do be careful when driving to the site. We saw a couple of large buses squeezing down the road.

So utterly breathtaking! It’s what you think of when Ireland comes to mind. Exceedingly narrow single lane road for 2 miles to get there, but be patient. It is worth it. The sheep farmer tends this land very well, and is kind and friendly. Know that it’s a short but steep hike to the stone circle and you’ll want your wellies to keep your feet dry in spring and fall. If you have physically challenged or children needing to be carried it might be too much to achieve. Make sure to close the gate as you enter the park to keep the sheep in. Our favorite site in Kerry thus far!
