Likely dating from different periods, the Bronze Age stone circle, which held the cremated remains of a youth in its center, is close by a Iron Age cook site and accompanying hut foundations. Was the sanctity of one spot the inspiration for the others? Explore in a virtual-reality tour here: http://www.voicesfromthedawn.com/drombeg-stone-circle/

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.
