Caherconnell Stone Fort Visitor Centre

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.

Address: Caherconnell Stone Fort Visitor Centre, Kilfenora, Co. Clare, Ireland

  1. Dear Sir or Madam,

    I am planning a trip to Burren on 11th of April 2017. We will get to Caherconnell at about 1 p.m. Is the visitor centre opened?

    I am looking forward to your answer.

    Yours faithfully

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
