Ardgroom

Ardgroom is a village on the Beara Peninsula in west Cork. Its name in Irish is Dhá Dhroim, meaning two Drumlins. It gets the name from two gravelly hills deposited by a glacier, Dromárd and Drombeg. It lies to the north north west of Glenbeg Lough, overlooking the Kenmare River estuary. It sits between the coast and the Slieve Miskish Mountains. The village has a shop and post office called Harrington's. It also has an Emo filling station and a pub, The Village Inn. Near the village lie a number of megalithic monuments. Signposted is the stone circle to be found to the east of the village at a distance of about 1 mile, off the old Kenmare road. It has the name "Canfea" but is normally called the "Ardgroom" stone circle. About 1 mile north east lie the remains of another stone circle. The Canfea circle consists of 11 stones, 9 of which are still upright with one alignment stone outside the circle. Also in the vicinity are the remains of at least two ring forts, as well as a number of standing stones and stone rows.
