I'm lucky enough to live quite close to this site and visit often. Early morning or late evening is absolutely magical.

A mystery much like Stonehenge, the stone circles of Beaghmore are said to be the focal point of religious or social gatherings. The site dates back to the Bronze Age and does have a bit of an eerie feel to it. Although that could just be down to the fact that we were the only ones there on an overcast,... More

This site is worth a visit, you can get a real feel of the ancient history. It's raw and natural. It's hasn't been spoilt by over commercialism either so you can go there to have your own unique experience. It's brilliant that history has been preserved like this.

Beaghmore is quite a special place but if you are expecting the giant monoliths of Stonehenge you will find this somewhat less overwhelming. On a cold windy day, it seems like the coldest, most windy place on the planet and very 'atmospheric'. On a bright sunny day you can really enjoy the peace,calm and beautiful wild countryside. That stretch of... More

There were easy sign posts to it as I got to the location outside of Cookstown. It's situated in a lovely area with great views of the landscape. I enjoyed my time there. Situated: From Cookstown take the A505 West until you see a brown right turn sign-posted Beaghmore stone circles. It's about 2.5 miles down the road to it... More

Visited here with my mum, we had a lovely time, it is well maintained and very peaceful. Although the hedge near the road sign is quite over grown so if you didn't know where you were going you could miss it! Beautiful views over the countryside and the birdsong is just amazing!

On a good day--weather wise this is a great spot. BUT if it is windy get yourself well covered up as it is on the side of the Sperrins and so cold. A fab place for children. They can run wild and enjoy the freedom. A picnic is also a good idea even if you have to dine in the... More

Being here felt as if you'd gone back in time. It was desolate and lovely all at the same time. A terrible beauty. Adults and kids loved it.

We almost missed the turning as it comes upon you suddenly and is quite a small sign. However we were glad we found it and walked around discussing what the surrounding countryside would have looked like back then, the alter-like formations and their uses. Interesting visit.
