Eightercua Stone Row, just south of Waterville Village in County Kerry, is an impressive standing stone alignment in an area that is rich in archaeological and early Irish mythological history.

Dating back to 1700 BC, the Eightercua Stone Row in County Kerry is a believed to be part of a Megalithic tomb. In Irish mythology, it is said to be the burial place of Sceine, who died at sea just before the Milesians landed in Ireland and was the wife of Amergin, a Milesian invader.

The site features four large standing stones, the tallest being nearly 3m high. The stones are aligned with the September Equinox. Parking and access to the site can be difficult and good walking shoes are advised. It can also be viewed from the nearby layby.

Tips from locals

There is a superb range of scenic walking options in the area, ranging from the long distance way marked route of the Kerry Way Walk, to some shorter 3 to 8 kms local trails.
