Maybe I'm just not open enough, or sensitive enough, or . . . I don't know . . . but I've read so many reviews using the word "magical" that I expected something, well, magical. I didn't feel it. I thought it was interesting, for...More

It doesn't cost anything to see the stone circles. Always impressive to see what our ancestors have created.

Amazing to experience an object that is over 3000 years old. Don’t forget to make a wish and add it to the wishing tree

We visited this area. Nobody there. Just a box to put in your admission. We've done that, because it was very neat and well maintained. Not very impressed by the religious impact of these stones, we can imagine that this must be a special spot.

Follow a map to the edge of the town of Kenmare nad follow the signs ofr the Stone Circle. And that is what you will see. Large borders arrayed in a circle of unclear origins and purpose. But if it is a nice day. the...More
