Fascinating slice of history

I would recommend this as part of a day trip out by planning your route as it is not worth going to see on its own unless you are really into ancient history. Having said that... read more

I would recommend this as part of a day trip out by planning your route as it is not worth going to see on its own unless you are really into ancient history. Having said that there is certainly an atmosphere about the place and it is in a beautiful part of the Sperrin mountains which is nice to drive... More

Love it! Peaceful tranquil positive energy fills the air. Beautiful. Easy to find with a little local help. Which I suppose means findable with Google. Unusual neolithic stone circles.

We love looking for stone circles and megalithic site, so the Beaghmore Stone Circles were on our list when we visited Ireland. Even with decent directions we thought we might have missed them, and we almost turned around. The circles are small, but they are fascinating because there are so many of them… and they occur in pairs. There are... More

I agree with the recent reviews; pretty cool, just the stones in the middle of nowhere which is lovely but don't expect toilets or infrastructure. It took two visits to find the bloody things though, local tourism information is woeful and online did not serve us well. Set your GPS to: 54.701584 N, 6.936703 W. That will save you driving...

worth a look but wouldn't recommend you go out of your way to go here. We spent half an hour here and was long enough, impressive stone circles, very small in size but perfectly laid out. Uncovered by peat farmers apparently. Theres no toilets, cafe as its pretty much in the middle of no where so plan you day around... More

Nice but a little underwhelming It was cool to think that the stones we r e placed so long ago but I didn't feel the "magic" Nothing else nearby

fascinating if somewhat lonely spot. Yu should have the place to yourself more often than not. Easy to wile away an hour just hopping around from circle to circle.

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

So accessible, history on your doorstep, just thinking that our forefathers walked these lands and built these circles thousands of years ago brought a tingle to my spine, a truly magical place of peace and tranquility, spirituaIty and wonder.

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
