We did not know about this and the nearby Cahergal Stone Fort and stumbled on them looking for something else - but we were delighted we did. This is a 9th or 10th century stone fort, really a protected farmstead of a wealthy farmer situated...More

A splendid example of prehistoric human habitation. If you are not into history the fort will give you food for thought. Walking the walls and looking at the view of the countryside is breath taking even on a wet and overcast day. Watch out for...More

We did this in combination with the Cahergall Fort since you park in the same place for both. It is a short walk to either. We enjoy both of them and from the top of the fort there are excellent views of the surrounding area.

Incredible to think people lived so long ago in these ruins. Explore as much as you want, let the presence of the past inhabit you.

A must see, and it is worth staying around and not to be in a hurry. The sourroundings are interesting too. There is also a fish-plant with great fish, smoked and fresh!

Nice walk along and a few steps up to this one, plus its a freebie with free local parking. I suggest one visits both ringforts as the same car park services both

This "restored" fort is quite impressive from below. It is well situated but requires you to do a short walk of about 400 meters which might be difficult for some. While I would not describe totally kid friendly children will enjoy themselves with some supervision....More
