Kenmare Stone Circle is the only egg shaped stone circle in Munster, measuring 17.4 x 15.8m. It lies on the Ring of Kerry in the town of Kenmare.
This type of shape is unusual for stone circles, their design could be a late geometrical development. Locally known as 'the Shruberries', the Kenmare stone circle is probably the largest one in the southwest of Ireland and it is composed of 15 heavy boulders, with 13 standing and two prostrate at the north. At the centre there is an impressive boulder burial with a giant capstone some 2m long, 1.8m wide and 0.8m thick. The weight of this capstone must be almost seven tonnes and it is estimated that at least 30 labourers would have been needed to drag it into position.
