    This enigmatic ancient monument, just a few minutes from Shaw's Bridge, is an ideal place for a day trip and picnic. Little, if anything, is known about this awesome prehistoric 182.88 meters (600 feet) wide circular earthwork. Some scholars have suggested that it may have been a significant meeting place 2000 years ago, but the exact purpose of the site remains unclear. Remains from a Stone Age burial were discovered under the dolmen in the centre and during the 18th Century, the ring was a popular venue for horse races. Nowadays, the Giant's Ring offers superb views of the parkland areas of South Belfast, as well as a purpose-built 2000 year-old walking circuit around its edge!
