“Astounding”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

This is so interesting a tourist attraction Down District Council hardly takes it under their notice being more focused on St Patrick to the detriment of pre Christian history....I bet nne of their tourism experts can tell how many stones make up the complete circle......Michael drake

“Wow!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This was our first stone circle in Ireland. It took awhile to figure out where to enter the circle. After locating the fence and trudging down the somewhat muddy path, we found it. Well worth the effort to get there. As with so many places in Northern Ireland, we had the place to ourselves.

“A lovely walk!”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

OK, there are probably more spectacular stone circles. However, the path on the way to this circle is a very long arch way of beautiful hedging. It's really a lovely walk and something special to see on its own. I've posted a photo I took on New year's day. And yes, as other reviewers said, it was mucky. However! We went there today in May and it was not mucky at all. So really, it does depend on the weather.

If you're going on a fine day to Tyrella Beach, then this isn't that far off the track either on the way to or from. Certainly make a stop to this magical little detour.
