“A Short walk to a small circle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Right off the town square a few hundred steps was a Stone Circle, an artifact of the irish heritage. You would have to read about the belief before going there. No explanation or other aids on site.

“silly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Silly--it's just some stones in a little circle. There's nothing to read about it, it's quite small and underwhelming.

“Kenmare's own Stonehenge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Not far from the center of town is another set of stones from centuries ago. Very well maintained grounds, and the honor system payment box is a nice touch too.

“very well kept circle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

the stone circle in Kenmare is undoubtedly the best kept circle. It is tucked away in a corner of Kenmare, signposted from the parking-lot about 100 meters away. The stones sit in a grass foeld, surrounded by trees and bushes. So not much scenery, but nice backdrops for photo's
