There are many spots in Ireland that give a sense of life in Ireland before histories were being written. This was the best spot we visited. The displays there tell the story of this site, and the surrounding scenery added so much.

We actually walked to Drombeg Stone Circle from Glandore following (sorta) the maps that are available in town. It was a wonderful adventure and a great way to get out and enjoy the countryside. This was the only stone circle we visited during our 2...More

Without a rented car, I doubt I can visit the site with public transport. The drive is easy but driving through narrow roads can be challenging with traffic from opposite direction. The signage is visible from the highway (which is just a narrow mountain road),...More

Fantastic, prehistoric site. Very impressive and not difficult to find or visit. Truly impressive and worth the visit. These people from 1800 b. C. E. We’re cooking in the style of a Mongolian pot!

We did not expect to see many people and we were surprised that it was very busy. We drove up to the location but later though it would have been a nice 2.5km walk up from Glendore. The site has a good explanation of the...More

Not well marked without gps, but once close just follow the signs down narrow Irish roads. Thankfully not too crowded. Dates from 1000-800BC. Soak up the scenery... relax and enjoy

A visit to Ireland isn't complete without a visit to a stone circle and this one is as good as any other. Free parking, followed by a short (5 minute) walk brings you to the stone circle, with great views towards the sea. Two information...More

Nice circle of standing stones with altar down the end of a short path from the parking lot. There is a sign with some information about the site and some speculation on the reason for the stone "trough". Free.

There is no paved access path to the circle. It is dirt and slightly uphill. I'd say that wheelchair accessibility would depend on if it had been raining recently and if the person pushing the wheelchair was strong enough to... More
