Leacanabuaile Stone Fort
Southwest Ireland | County Kerry
Leacanabuaile Stone Fort is located near Cahersiveen in Ballycarbery East on Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry. Partly reconstructed but still under construction dry-stone walled fort is one of very few in Ireland of these to be excavated (in 1939/40). Objects found there dating from 8th and 9th century and suggesting the existence of an early Christian farming community. It has about 20 meters in diameter, walls reach above 2 m high and up to 2.5m thick, with the lintelled entrance in the east. There are remainings of four building inside: circular hut that abuts the west wall (the oldest one), and two other rectangular ones adjacent into the wall. From the top of fort's walls, you will see Cahergall Stone Fort and ruins of the Ballycarbery Castle in the distance.
