When in Ireland, Scotland and England you will have many opportunities to visit Neolithic sites. No one knows what they really are or who really made them. Theories abound, but no proof. From the smallest to the largest they are strange and magical places. This...More

The Giant's Ring is a henge monument at Ballynahatty, near Shaw's Bridge, Belfast, It apparently dates from c.2700BC. In the middle of the raised Circle is a tomb made up of 5 upright stones and a large capstone. The place is quite stunning in its...More

Don't miss seeing this historic site. Incredible that it remains and has not been razed by previous generations. A simple reminder of the ancient history of this area and its people.

A beautiful site to visit, such ancient history still able to see and feel. Lovely surrounding area as well and would be a fantastic walk to go on for a few hours. Certainly recommend checking out!

I love the scale of this Neolithic monument, the views of Belfast Hills in a westerly direction and patchwork of landscape in others. Today I smiled at the irony of spuds growing in nearby fields. Again, irresponsible dog owners let the area down.

This important part of our heritage is spoiled by some visitors dropping litter, letting their dogs poo everywhere and others leaving far worse behind. The stones are so important but it is totally spoiled by the mess. It is also well known for other reasons.

I stayed at the nearby Crowne Plaza and had the afternoon to spare. This place was about 5 minutes drive from the A55. It is well signposted and has a large carpark (which is closed at night to discourage the dogging elements I guess!) ....More

Part of large network of parks along river. The place is well known from centuries ago. Would not recommend to arrange as dedicated trip as there is nothing special to see. The set of stones have been constructed most recently and looks like modern construction...More
