If you have any interest in history you have to visit this site, when you are in the area. Excellently restored and maintained.

Leacanabuaile Fort and Cahergall Fort both of which are well preserved examples of stone forts and can be accessed by the same parking lot. Worth visiting when travelling to or from Waterville. We had perfect sunny weather, amazing view of the scenery

The car park is on the main road and the hike up is a little over a quarter mile, so very manageable. The site is incredibly well maintained for a 1000+ year old site. The ruins and the backdrop are a must see. Well worth...More
