Cashelkeelty Stone Circles: Lauragh, Co Kerry

As you drive out along the north edge of the Ring of Beara, you will pass Lauragh, and then see a forest to your left. There is a small turn in – don’t stop at the first one, go on to the second one. There are paths at both, but the second one will take you up through the forest and to the top of the hill more quickly, and without having to jump as many fences to reach the standing stones at the top.

When you do get past the tree line, the stones are to your right, and command a fantastic view, even on a misty day, of the surrounding peninsula, and across to the Ring of Kerry to the north. If it’s been at all damp, make sure to be wearing stout shoes, preferably water resistant.

When we were walking through the forest, a small deer flirted with us. It kept watching us, yet didn’t bound away – just moved a safe distance, and watched us some more.
