Uragh Stone Circle

Stone circles can be found across Ireland. They were built between 3,000 and 500 B.C. and were probably used for rituals or religious functions; no one really knows for sure. One thing is for certain – finding them usually requires a drive down a very narrow road (so narrow that if you meet a car, one of you has to back up) followed by a hike up a steep hill through pasture lands. I’ve become a pro at cleaning shite off the bottom of my boots, but its worth it to savor a bit of ancient history.

Uragh Stone Cirlce is located on the Beara Peninsula in South West County Kerry. There’s a box for you to drop your 2 Euro entrance fee and is, like other sites around Ireland, based on the honor system.
