|Description ||Kenmare Stone Circle and Boulder Burial, Co. Kerry (V907 707):
This attractive setting of fifteen small boulder stones is readily accessible, being situated close to the centre of Kenmare. Measuring 17.4 by 15.8 meters in diameter, it is of special interest in being the only example in Munster of an egg-shaped stone ring. The ring surrounds a boulder-burial consisting of a massive seven ton capstone supported by several low stones. This style of burial appears to be restricted to this part of Ireland: there are over seventy examples in the south Munster area, with apparently just one elsewhere in Ireland.
