Cahersiveen : The Ring Of Kerry Secrets


Following a short drive with some stunning Atlantic views we arrive in the town of Cahersiveen, a town in the Region of Skellig Kerry, County Kerry, Ireland.  It is located on the River Fertha and is the principal town of the Iveragh Peninsula. The Catholic church in the town is the only one in Ireland named after a lay person, Daniel O Connell (19th-century Irish politician and campaigner for Catholic Emancipation and Repeal of the 1801 Act of Union).

Stone Forts

Cahersiveen is also home to some excellent examples of iron-age stone forts. Cahergall stone fort date’s some-where in the region of 500BC to 400AD. Cahergall is an impressive stone fort with massive dry-stone walls.  There are flights of steps and terraces on the inner walls.  Within the fort there are the remains of a large dry-stone building.  It is lightly that some-one of importance lived here about 1000 years ago.

Ballycarberry Castle

Located nearby are the ruins of Ballycarberry Castle.  This Castle was the home of the McCarthy clan and is dated back to 1559.
