First off let me start by saying everyone & their mother in Northern Ireland questioned us as to why we were visiting Downpatrick. So glad we did though! The path is really cool & great for pictures. There are hidden trinkets all along the path....More

Enchanting little walk down a wee pathway to wonder at a stone circle. If you are lucky you may see a fairy or one of them leprechauns. Cows galore in adjacent field giving knowing looks!

I wasn't expecting much but i was really surprised. The lane down to the circle is amazing - lookout for stuff in the hedges :) The circle itself is good but checkout the fairy tree at one end of the circle ( wishing box )

Very spiritual and great energy. Quiet a long walk down a narrow pathway so anyone with walking problems may find it difficult.

A lovely site on the outskirts of Downpatrick. Great information board with the history. Fascinating stuff. Stones here have traveled all the way from Drogheda's and are some of the same as used at New Grange.

Just discovered this fantastic place the hawthorn covered walk is magical and the blackberries were in full swing! The stones seem to have faces and one can feel the energy of ancient ireland! Will be back in winter!
