Definitely well worth the effort to get there. It's not that hard to find. The picture map of Rosscarbery on the road gave us good directions. A beautiful and powerful setting, and the stone circles are well preserved and well explained.

Having parked and walked past the "you're not welcome on my land" signs, the stones were well kept, well explained and simple with cracking views over the bay. Worth a trip for quiet contemplation.

This very serene stone circle was given as a national monument by the local landowner (thank you) and access is free to the public. After a short, scenic walk from the small car park the stone circle comes into view against a beautiful backdrop of rolling landscape tumbling down towards the grey ocean. The ancients who built this site surely chose the spot for its location. We visited in the late afternoon in early July and the site was practically deserted. The experience was tranquil and moving. The information boards are very informative. The site includes the remains of dwellings with a water trough and a cooking hearth and surrounding wall as well as the stone circle itself.

We heard about it, drove to it and then enjoyed walking the path to see what it was all about. A mini Stonehenge of sorts - lots of history depicted on signs about the reasons for various stones, pits, etc.. Amazing how clever people were a far back as the 5th Century A.D.

This is one of our favorite prehistoric (bronze age) sites we visited. Besides the stone circle it has two stone hut foundations, and some interesting plaques discussing the possible cooking, brewing that took place next to the well. After discussion we don't think they would have dunked meat directly in the water, but understanding the heating of water using stones and seeing the spring/well was neat. I like that this site has several things in it and is open without a fee. Also see megalithicireland.com for a list of similar sites across Ireland!
