Cahergal Stone Fort An Chathair Gheal

Cahergal Stone Fort is an impressive example of a ring fort, dating back to the Iron Age. A few of such forts can be found in Ireland.
Cahergal Stone Fort has been renovated and is surrounded by a massive wall, measuring up to 4 meters on its highest point.
Inside the ring fort, the remnants of a circular building can be found.

Directions

Cahergal Stone Fort is located approximately 3,5 kilometres west of Cahersiveen.
In Cahersiveen, turn off the Wild Atlantic Way and follow Bridge Street. You will pass the barracks (which rather resemble a castle themselves) on the way. Follow the road over the bridge and turn left at the T-junction. After 2 kilometres, you will reach a parking area, where a path leads to the fort.
Approximately 400 meters further, you will find Leacanabuaile Stone Fort.
