Ardgroom Outward Stone Circle

Ardgroom Stone Circle consists of 11 stones (9 of which are still upright) and one Alignment stone (bottom image).
The diameter of the circle is 2 meters.
The stones height varies between 1.3 and 2.1 meters and the width of the stones are between 0.4 and 0.9 meters. 
The circle and its setting is nothing short of stunning - for backdrops it has everything - mountains, rugged landscape and the sea.
Finding this circle is pretty easy.
The site is signposted just before Ardgroom village (travelling from Kenmare).
Getting to the circle can be tricky as the ground leading to the circle might well be bottomless depending on the time of the year.
