We saw three ring forts on our trip around the Ring of Kerry. This was the smallest and my least favorite, but it was still worth the short walk from the parking area. It has lower walls that the other two, but it still an...More
I was skeptical to see another stone fort, but I'm glad we stopped - we did both this one (Leacanabuaile) and Cahergall at the same time. It's about a 10-minute walk but worth it. They're both massive and so different from each other. Leacanabuaile has...More
We visited this on the same day as Cahergall Fort and Ballycarbery Castle. This fort shares the same small car park as Cahergall Fort. It is also free to park and enter the fort. It's about a 10 minute walk from the car park. Although...More
Well worth a short visit, this fort and Cahergall Fort are very close to each other and share the same car park. You have to walk around 10 mins to each of the forts but they are both worth it. Very impressive and best of...More

If you are interested in the Celts, this is a must see. I visited a number of sites yesterday. However, I would say this was the best example that I saw.
I would strongly advise making a point of visiting this well preserved site.
We had previously stopped at Staigue Fort so thought we would also stop at this one and Cahergal since they are next to each other. There were signs for the forts off the main road and we also had our Rick Steve's guide book to...More
It's walls may be less impressive than those of nearby Cahergall, but it looks more like the other stone forts around Ireland with multiple buildings inside and a souterrain (an underground tunnel archaeologists believe was used for storage and hiding). You can climb in the...More
Not as well preserved as Cahergall Stone Fort, but still really interesting to see. It's a nice walk up to it, and it's fun to imagine who lived there and how they used the tunnel (that we stuck our head in, but didn't dare go...More
