This was our first stop along the Ring of Kerry Route (clockwise from Kenmare), and we were not disappointed. After a little detour off the main road through small country roads, you reach the desolate ruins of this old stone fort, surrounded by lush greenery. The kids very much enjoyed climbing up on the inside of the fort, and entering the small crawlspaces. Definitely worth a stop on the way around the Ring of Kerry.

This fort is not a fort and is way off the beaten path about a 3 mile drive up the hill on a narrow windy one lane road - so narrow that sometimes you have to back all the way up to let another car pass. It is a chieftan’s home and is basically a circle of rocks. There is a box to put a one euro trespass fee.

This defensive fort is thought to have been built for a local lord or king around 300 or 400AD. It is impressive to see the stones, without the benefit of mortar, still in place in the overall structure of the forbidding walls. The circular fort is surrounded by a ditch. However, I suggest a better example is the exhilarating Grianan of Aileach in County Donegal.

It is quite amazing to think of this ring fort containing houses, outbuildings, tents and other outbuildings; people going about their daily lives.If the fort walls could talk.
