Artist's Description

A few hundred meters on from Ballycarbery Castle is the stone fort of Cahergal built around 600AD. It is well worth a visit and is only a small detour off the Ring of Kerry. The current structure is an impressive site. With walls approx 6 m high and some 3 m thick this dry stone wall fort is one of the best examples of an early medieval stone forts to be found on the ring of Kerry.

Location: The Stone forts of Cahergal & Leacanabuaile are located in an area know as “over the water” by the locals in Cahirciveen. Find the Old Barracks in Cahirciveen, located down by the waters edge, with the barracks on your right hand side continue over the bridge immediately ahead, at the next crossroads take a left and follow the signposts for the forts, they are located approximately two miles on the left (head in the direction of Ballycarberry castle). Also well worth visiting in this area is Ballycarberry Castle.
