Caherconnell Stone Fort

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 04/09/2014

Fodor's Review

There are several stone forts in the Burren thought to have been in use between AD 400 and 1200, but Caherconnell—1 km (½ mile) south of Poulnabrone—is the best preserved, and the only one excavated and made accessible to visitors. The visitor center has an audio-visual display on the chief archaeological features of the area, including burial places marked by dolmens or cairns. Ongoing excavations continue to fill in the blanks of this impressive structure's history.

Be sure to check out the sheepdog demonstrations and café.
