This was an easy walk from town and so amazing to see stones still where they were placed thousands of years ago. Definitely worth popping over if you are in Kenmare, it is a quick stop.

Just a short walk from town. There is an honesty box where you pay a very reasonable admission fee of 2 Euros per person. there are 15 stones, dating back to the bronze age. It's very tranquil and thought provoking.
