Along with Ballycarbery Castle, the two stone forts make a great side trip excursion while on the Ring of Kerry. The forts are well maintained and sparsely visited (no tour buses). We had the place to ourselves on a beautiful sunny day. This fort is...More

A short drive past the castle are a pair of stone forts, this one and Cahergall Fort both of which are well preserved examples of stone forts. If you are not heading to Dingle where there are some other examples, make sure you seek these...More

Very close to the other stone fort (same parking area). Also well preserved, with a historic sign for information.

We explored this fort with our four year old. These sites are great as you can climb their stairs and steps and walk on the walls. Check out the creepy tunnel and chambers in the walls.

Stunning views of County Kerry from this well preserved (restored) stone fort. A nice 10min walk from the carpark and close to Cahergall fort so you can visit both at the same time. Not a lot of information about the site. Children enjoyed exploring.

Easy to get to and very interesting to experience. A quick google search for some background before you go - makes it even more interesting. There is another site nearby - about three minutes walk.

This was the only fort with significant interior walls and although I'm not sure what the significance/use of the pattern was they were very interesting. You can see both the castle and the other fort from this one.

One of the best things about the Leacanabuaile Stone Ring Fort and its nearby sister Cahergall Stone Fort is that they are relatively easy to visit and no one (as yet) is charging an admission fee. These ancient ring forts (found in many places in...More
