Places to Visit | Co. Clare, Ireland
Caherconnell Stone Fort, situated 1km south of Poulnabrone dolmen in the heart of the Burren, offers you the opportunity to visit an exceptionally well – preserved example of the stone forts or stone ringforts, which are to be found in Ireland
The fort is in its original state and an important historical site in Ireland. Its position, overlooking virtually all-surrounding areas suggests a defensive settlement. This may not have been defensive in a military sense, but rather for personal security from raiders or wild animals which were among the most common foes at the time. These days, it is a stunning place to see in Co Clare.
