Straigue Ring Fort, an Iron Age fortress along the Ring of Kerry, County Kerry, Ireland

Straigue Ring Fort is an Iron age Fort located along the Ring of Kerry that is strategically situated on a hillside, and is remarkably intact considering it was built without mortar sometime around 500 A.D. or earlier. This Ring Fort was one of the most impressive that we saw on our trip around Ireland. It was most probably built before St Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland.
