Eerie and interesting - Old Ireland / Celts. Great views. The imagination went wild. There was mist, rain, sun - you name it. A good way to spend some time when driving through there

We visited this stone circle on our hike from Allies to Castletownbere. It is just off the Beara Way, and easily accessible.
