Ballynoe Stone Circle

By Porthos    
The Ballynoe stone circle is a large circle of over 50 standing stones, some as large as 2 metres high and is located near the town of Ballynoe in County Down. It is thought that the site dates back to around 2000BC and was begun in the Stone Age. The original site was modified during the Bronze Age when a burial mound was constructed within the main stone circle. Its location with superb views of the Mourne Mountains and its size make it one of the most impressive stone circles in Ireland.
