Ardgroom Outward, county Cork

V 708 553 - Sheet 84

Nearest village: Lauragh


Commanding a fine view from its exposed position over Bantry Bay,
this fine axial-stone circle has stones similar to the pillar-like slabs of the smaller circle at Drombohilly (Kerry),
almost 10 km NE.
In this circle also 9 stones survive, with some unfortunately missing:
one can be seen in a field-fence some distance to the N. They range from l.3 to almost 2 metres in height.
Outside the circle, to the E, is an associated standing stone (right).
The axial stone (left) is, unusually, set on end.
