Beaghmore Stone Circles

Counties Fermanagh & Tyrone

What these Neolithic stone circles lack in stature – the stones are all less than 1m tall – they make up for in complexity; the impressive complex has seven stone circles and rows, one filled with smaller stones, nicknamed 'dragon's teeth'.

The site is signposted about 8km east of An Creagán, and 4km north of the A505. The scenic drive to the stones offers wonderful views of the Sperrins.
