Our return to Drombeg was eqully awesome from 2014 visit. Some believe that by placing a loved one in the center and placing your hand on the correct stone the circle become activated and super positive, healing energy is transferred to the person. The setting is fabulous with views across the landscape. Free visit. Take a tiny bit of time... 更多
This recumbent stone circle of 17 stones dates back to 1000 BC. At the winter solstice (21st December) the sun sets at a on the horizon aligned with the axis. .

Local sun worshippers have somewhat damaged the experience in recent years and there is perhaps too much access to the standing stones and other associated artefacts. It is nevertheless a fine... 更多
We stopped by here on our way from Kinsale to Kenmare, along the wild Atlantic way. The stones are just a short walk from the parking lot.
