This is a small stone circle dating back to the Bronze Age. This is a place that doesn't get a huge amount of visitors but is well your drive off of the main highway to get there. The last couple of kilometers is on a narrow lane; slow down, watch for oncoming cars, and enjoy the countryside! Great views of... More

Amazing to see one of the largest stone circles in Irealand. Easy to find, well signposted. Car park available and about five minutes walk down a beautiful lane you are there. Beautiful setting. Well worth a visit.

A beautiful recumbent stone circle in the middle of nowhere. In the same league as Stonehenge, but without the crowds, admission fees and gift nshops.

I have been here twice now, both times brining visitors to Ireland. Its very accessible and theres a sense of history and great beauty about this place. If you are ever in Skibereen , you must go.

I have been going to Drumbeg for years and over time access has improved and the information about the archaeology has improved, but overall the site is not good. Local sun worshippers have somewhat damaged the experience in recent years and there is perhaps too much access to the standing stones and other associated artefacts. It is nevertheless a fine...

We stopped by here on our way from Kinsale to Kenmare, along the wild Atlantic way. The stones are just a short walk from the parking lot. And, besides the stones, there is the well and the hut foundations from the same time period. It was a beautiful day, and it had not rained for a few days; however the... More

Visited this stone circle early in the morning, weather was not great but it was very interesting place to visit. The structure also allows for the solstice events to occur just like Newgrange. Its not to far off the beating track. We stopped off here on our way to Skibbereen. Just be aware that there is only enough parking spaces... More

I have long wanted to visit Drombeg and finally had a chance this June. The circle is amazing. There are other sites located on the same property. I recommend reading up on the site before you come. There are information boards, but it helps to have some information to plan you review of the entire site. I sat on a... More
