Kenmare Stone Circle
Kenmare Stone Circle
This stone circle is about 300 metres west of the town centre of Kenmare in an area known as The Shrubberies. It comprises a ring of 15 free-standing stones, 13 upright and 2 prostrate, with a diameter of about 16 metres. These circles are thought to form part of the funerary or ritual tradition of the Bronze Age, dating from between about 2400 BC and 500 BC.
