Near the village of Ardgroom lie a number of megalithic monuments, the most picturesque of which is probably the stone circle to be found to the southwest of the village. It has the name "Canfea" but is sometimes called the "Ardgroom southwest" circle to distinguish it from the remains of another stone circle northeast of the village. The Ardgroom Stone Circle measures about 8min diameter. It contains 9 stones upright and 2 prostrate. The gate is formed by two stones of about six foot in height towards the North - Northeast. The stones are unusual in that they taper to a point.
Places worth your attention in the nearby area:
3.2km (2ml) west is the tall Ogham-inscribed standing stone at Faunkill-and-the-Woods.
9.6km (6ml) southwest is another fine circle at Derreenataggart West.
Less than 4.5 km (3 miles) east is Shronebirrane stone circle.

It stands in a field a couple of miles from the village. To find it, go to the Post Office in Ardgroom then head in the direction of Kenmare for approx. 2 miles, look for a minor road coming in from your right and a signpost pointing to the circle.
