Staigue Fort

Southwest Ireland | County Kerry

Staigue Fort (An Stéig) is partly ruined (but one of the largest and finest in Ireland) dry-stone, walled ringfort, located on the Iveragh peninsula in County Kerry (Ring of Kerry). Probably built in the early centuries AD as defensive stronghold for local chieftain. Fort is surrounded by earthen bank and ditch, has about 27 m (90 ft) in diameter, its walls are up to 6 m (20 ft) high and up to 4 m (13 ft) thick at the base, with the lintelled entrance and two small chambers inside the wall. Inner wall contains system of stairs leading to the top. None inner buildings survived to this day, but probably, there were even a few buildings (chieftain's house and some huts for guards and servants).
