Summer Solstice Events

In Standard by heritagepark3 Comments

Annually at the Heritage Park we celebrate the Summer Solstice by gathering at the Stone Circle and watching the sun rise, commemorating a tradition that dates back to our ancestors; the first settlers in Bonane, thousands of years ago.

Everyone is welcome to attend this special event and celebrate with the people of the local area 🙂


  1. Hello from Oregon, Visiting Kenmare while on a bike tour. Staying at Park Hotel. What is the distance from hotel to You? Plan to attend Solstice event. Can you provide more details. Time? Any suggestions on transportation as bike ride in the dark is not a good option. Thanks!

    Hello Dee,

    Great to hear from you. Firstly, the Heritage Park is approximately 7 miles from the Park Hotel. The Solstice event is taking place from 6:40am, I’m sure it would be possible to organise a local taxi from the Park Hotel. Be sure to bring warm clothing and some midge repellent! Look forward to seeing you there. If you have any further questions please contact us:)

    Kind regards,

    Bonane Heritage Park
