The Stone Circle is only a few steps from Kenmare town center. I was totally impressed with it. The location is beautiful!

We like to visit stone circles, so it was a pleasant surprise to find an authentic one within easy walking distance of the town center! Nicely maintained and quite peaceful, this lovely site is well worth a visit. Ask at the Tourist Office for directions, as it's not well signposted.

This could not have been more convenient to find. It is almost behind the information office. After a five minute walk past the rental cottages you find this very nice circle. It is a must-see in Kenmare

If you just finished your dinner in Kenmare and can spare 20 minutes...sure go walk to the stone circle. If you are driving through and stopping here for an awesome tourist attraction, I would say keep driving. Its some big rocks put in a circle the size of a putting green. This was probably one of the more disappointing stops... More

Just a short walk from the town centre is this Bronze Age stone circle. One of the largest of its type in Western Europe, there is no sign of damage or disturbance to the original layout and construction. Quiet and pleasant location in a small well maintained field by the River Finnihy. Worth a short visit when in town.

This site is not easy to find with signage being minimal and it is tucked behind a Chinese food restaurant. But, once you find it, the scene is almost surreal. With the toll booth unmanned, we had to giggle at the "Honesty Box" left to collect the minimal fee. The stone circle itself was a relaxing haven of history and... More

A short walk from the town centre finds you at the lovely garden area and Stone Circle. It was important to read the information, otherwise you wouldn't really know what you were looking at. It was peaceful and intriguing. The "Honesty Box" at the entry was a surprise! You can see the care which has been taken to preserve and... More

Really enjoyed our walk to the stone circle. Quite amazing. Haven't seen stonehenge but this one is not behind a fence. Still not sure about the messages in the tree on the grounds, but truly enjoyed. Honor system for entrance.

Deserted in early afternoon - very peaceful, best way to see a site of this type. No attendant, honor system for entry fee. This is only a long block away from the busy tourist scene at the city center, but it seems a world away.
