There are two Stone Pairs and a three stone row here at Keilnascarta. They are in a line NNW-SSE and are all in different fields.
The three stone row is the middle of the three.
Aligned NE-SW, only two of the stones are still upright. The NE stone laying prostrate.
A Hawthorn tree has grown up the middle stone.
All the stones are of a similar height.
Access for this and the NW pair is nice and easy.
Coming from Bantry about 100 yards before the Ballydehob turning there are two bungalows on the left. A small bohreen runs up between them past a farmhouse. The Row is in the field to the right and the stone pair in the field to the left.
Ask at the bungalow on the right or the farmhouse.

Keilnascarta SE (Stone Row / Alignment) — Fieldnotes

The third in a line of alignments in Keilnascarta Townland. This one is of two stones and is situated about 100 metres SE of the middle row, seperated by a deep and overgrown disused railway cutting.
Both stones are of a similar height (around 1.5 metres) and are against a field hedge and are overgrown with brambles. They are aligned NE-SW.

Keilnascarta NW (Stone Row / Alignment) — Fieldnotes

A wonderful stone pair. Both stones are 2.5 metres high and aligned NE-SW.
Access is the same as for the row, which lies about 50 yards away to the SE across the bohreen.
