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.

A lovely peaceful place to visit for an afternoon to get away from it all. Had a nice picnic here, with only a few other tourists stopping by now and again. Hidden gem.

Like so many places in Northern Ireland we were the only visitors, While some might regard this as loads of old stones we had never seen anything quite like it. Seven small stone circles in close proximity and no one will ever really know why they were there!

One of the three subjects I photograph when in Ireland and Scotland are megalithic sites, and these stone circles are a perfect example. The area is well kept, and is a very peaceful and beautiful spot out in the Irish countryside. I had perfect weather during my visit, and came away with some excellent photos. Suggestion for anyone with a... More

Stone circles, stone rows and cairns along with the barren landscape all add to the majesty of this place. I visited in March on a cold frosty but sunny day and it took my breath away.

The Beaghmore stonecircles are worth a visit. The size of the stones is certainly not impressive since the stones are smaller then 1 meter. What makes this site impressive is the amount of stones and the extend of the area. The whole area was once covered with a layer of peat. When the peat was removed the stonecircles appeared.
