|What a fantastic place this is,located just outside the picturesque town of Killarney.
This beautiful stone circle surrounded by an equally great henge. The henge is 15m in
diameter with the surrounding bank about 1m high with two entrances, one to the NE
and the other to the SW. The circle is an almost perfect circle of 7 stones set within the
henge and bounded by trees. The circle is 4.3m in diameter, and the stones are about an
average of a 1m in height. The circles orientation is 210 degrees and is known locally
as 'The Seven Sisters'. The stone pair of Lissyviggeen are 30m SW.
