Just a short walk from Kenmare Towne, Stone Circle represents one of the largest prehistoric monuments of its kind in southwestern Ireland. This arrangement consists of 15 heavy standing stones surrounding a boulder dolmen in the center of the circle. This circle and dolmen were most likely placed in the Late Neolithic period for ceremonies, including burials of the dead. This is a a great site to see if you want to check out one of Ireland's many stone circles but don't want to go far from town to do so. The circle is considered one of the best-maintained prehistoric monuments in the country.

Stone Circle reviews
Peaceful place where to make up your mind. I think there was a real witch getting power of the stones and doing her rituals while we were visiting. Felt like we have to leave the place as we are on... more »
Revisiting our heritage and exploring the stones that have the own unique history to them. Perfect outdoor exploring more »
Beautiful site, well maintained, but charging to see a stone circle seems to violate some Irish heritage laws. It's a small site, very peaceful.
It is impressive to see. It is €2 per person and works on a honor system. It is not worth €2 per person and in my opinion should be based on donation alone. Or what you are called to give. There is a wishing tree. Sad I had nothing to tie to it. Also do not touch the rocks. Bonus that there was 2 hour free parking in town. Enjoy.
