Kealkil Stone Circle

Kealkil Stone Circle in West Cork, consists of a small five stone circle, two large standing stones (one eight feet tall, the other almost sixteen feet) and a cairn of stones with a 'kerb' of stones set upright in a radial pattern around the inside.

The elevated position on a mountain ridge gives extensive views across Bantry Bay to the west and miles of hills and valleys in every other direction except south, where the mountain rises above the complex.

This is one of the few circle sites to have been excavated and inside the circle was found a setting of crossed timber sleepers which may perhaps have held an upright of stone or wood. Like most alignments, the two outliers stones are on a northeast-southwest axis, parallel with that of the circle.
