This park is outside Kenmare, County Kerry, Ireland. It has well maintained trails and the walk is not too strenuous, though there is a small hill to climb. There is a Stone Circle, with descriptive markers. There is the remains of an Earthen Fort. There are remains of some very small Famine huts. How did large families live in these???... More

Great views, exercising walk and a trip through history is a nice way to spend a morning! 10 euro for a family of four.

From the crannog at the reception area to the 5000 years of history we experienced as we walked though the park, our attention was held by the beauty of the setting and the mountains surrounding us. it was so worth it to stop here and pause for a while and learn the ancient history of this fascinating place.

This is special. Stone circle, huge ring fort, standing stones, and 3 other genuine stone age structures all in their original placements within a 2 km radius. Situated on a hill between two valleys with outstanding views and withing the stone circle, you can see the various standing stones miles away that align at solstice times. Amazing

What we liked about was that whilst it has a lot in a relatively small area it not at all 'Disneyfied' but still has a lot of information. The views from the site were a joy. An excellent job done by the people of Bonane, well done.

We visited Bonane Heritage Park on a tour. The climb was steep but worth it. Our guide was knowledgeable and the views were gorgeous. Ireland is full of surprises!

This was one of our absolute highlights during our trip to Ireland. I really enjoyed the 2 km. walk amongst the old ruins. I also think that 4 Euros is nothing to pay for the place to be maintained so that more people can enjoy it. I think that is was enough of information about each piece of ruin. The... More

The park is just outside Kenmare on the road to Glengarriff. The attraction is a walk up to a series of ancient monuments, such as a hill fort, a pre-famine ruined farmhouse and various standing stones. In all honesty, if you ignore the stunning landscape, there’s not a lot to see. On the other hand, the entry fee is very... More

We recently visited the Bonane Heritage Park in South Kerry on the Beara Peninsula halfway between Kenmare and Glengariff. This was an amazing experience and well worth an hour's visit. I would put this place of Epic Historical Significance on a par with Newgrange in Co Meath, Set in a valley of stunning beauty, if you are in Kerry, this... More

We just happened upon this little gem as we were driving to Cork. It was early and you can see the mist over the mountains. It was so nice once we made it top where the stones are. There is so much to see, mountains, lakes in the distance,blooms everywhere. stones and fossils. There is an easy path that is... More
