Derreenataggart West Stone Circle

Derreenataggart West Stone Circle can be found a short drive from Castletownbere, Co Cork.
What remains of this circle stands definitely with some jaw dropping background beauty.
Eight stones remain standing (nine if you count the stub of a broken stone).
The circle originally may have had as much as fifteen stones.
The diameter of the circle is just under 8 meters wide and the tallest of the stones are over 2 meters high.
The circle is well signposted from Castletownbere (about 2 kms ).
Parking is ok with a gate way opposite the site.
This circle although missing stones & with views blocked in some directions is still special so if your in the neighborhood Derreenataggart is a must !!
