A Modest Stone Circle
Jun 2019
No one else was visiting this stone circle at the time we were there. We happened upon it as we were travelling through the county.

Delightful gem, well maintained, not crowded
Sep 2018 • Friends
Relying on a large scale map, we almost missed this little gem, once we were on the right road, we found the signpost and parked in the empty car park.
Up a short trail we found some domesticated mules/donkeys ? and a friendly farmer going about his work. The circle is only small and some would say 'not in its natural state', but the exact measures to be taken to preserve history are very polarising, for me its is still here after many hundreds of years and I am pleased.

Great site, but absolutely no story or other means of engaging the visitor. We really wanted to know about the history of the area and ended up using wikipedia most of the visit.

Don't go out of your way to visit.

The circle is well sign-posted so not hard to find. A little underwhelming but nice to come across. It's a pity the land around it isn't more appealing to add to the atmosphere of this ancient site.

Worth a visit if your passing but not sure if worth it otherwise. Good info and history is worth preserving.

Came across this while searching for an ancestral home located on Drumskinney Road
Jun 2018 • Family
Having never actually walked around an ancient stone circle before, I was delighted to experience the space and contemplate the people's lives and rituals that must have taken place here. Quiet and secluded, was guarded by a single donkey. About a 1/2 mile up the road from my ancestor's home. I wonder if they knew anything about this place 200 years ago.

Small but worth a stop
Jun 2018 • Couples
The site itself is well maintained but rather hemmed in by fencing and the gravel feels a little out of keeping and non naturalistic. The signage could be more informative about the purpose and meaning of the stones and their composition. But overall this is a small but interesting site, worth a stop if you are passing nearby.

The stones are easy to find and clearly marked information is readily on site unfortunately it's a bit disappointing as the stones are so small and.after a few minutes you have seen it all

Great name
Sep 2017 • Couples
We went to Drumskinny purely because we liked the name so thought we'd look at the stone circle while we went through. It is clearly marked and fenced, with an information board. The ground was pretty boggy but it had been raining a lot. There wasn't anyone else about which made it a bit unbelievable that this was a place to visit. But it stopped raining while we were there.

Fascinating if you like ancient sites
Jul 2017 • Couples
Drumskinny Stone Circle does require a bit of a trip to get to. However I am very interested in Neolithic sites so personally I found this interesting and rewarding to visit. Another reviewer commented that it is 'just a small circle of stones'. Well, yes, that is what a stone circle is. The point is to ponder on what our ancestors used these sites for and to see these objects that have remained untouched for thousands of years. So if you interested in this sort of thing then Drumskinny should be on your 'to do' list. If you are expecting to see anything other than a circle of stones, then obviously don't bother!
