These types of tall stones features are common to circles close to Kildare – Wicklow border.

Just to the north of the circle is the single standing stone or outlier.

Legend relates that this outlying stone and the circle area relate to a piper and his dancers, petrified in stone for violating the Sabbath.

To get there, follow the N81 from Dublin passed Hollywood and look out for a brown sign on the left hand side of the road saying “Piper’s Stone Circles”.

It is possible to park right next to this sign.
