Graigue (Minard) / An Ghráig

Standing Stone

Situated at the eastern end of Sea hill this huge stone has split into two separate pieces. It stands at 3.75 metres in height and 2.6 metres wide, the part that remains standing is the largest portion. The other slab lies on two uprights at an angle of 45 degrees. José managed to get some nice close up images on a later visit. This dramatic monolith is situated in a stunning location and may be best viewed in the evening.

Situated: From Dingle take the N86 east after 10K take a right turn in Banoge for Minard Head, then a right and left. after 400m take a right turn, then take another right at the crossroads. The stone is 400 metres down here.
