Milltown

Standing Stone

As we drove towards Dingle town from the monastic site at Kilcolman, Maumanorig, we came across this huge standing stone. Known as Gallán na Cille Brice or the Milestone it stands at 2.8 metres high and is 1.38 metres in width. This impressive stone is situated by the north side of the R559 in the garden of Milestone House B&B. There are a number of other standings stones in the area and also some rock art. About 70 metres north east of here is a stone pair known as Geatái na Glóire-Gates of Glory and 30m NE is a large recumbent stone bearing rock art

Situated: Very easy situated in the garden of Milestone House by the north side of the R559, one mile west of Dingle Town.
