The stone fort is pretty magnificent :)
Such a beautiful looking fort! Love the greeny sorrounding!
Beautiful greeny place! I could use a weekend to go there!

I have never known of this place before this. Thanks for shring. :)
Cool.. we laso have something like that here in the philippines its in Intramuros...thx for visiting
Ooo.. this is awesome and it's situated in a lovely place!
I do want to go back to Ireland again!
Beautiful photos. Nice to see lush and green this time of year.
Wonderful to see so much still standing after all this time - you'd think the stones would have gone to make walls and barns.
cool shotsMine in here : Miniatures and Water Tower Thanks
nice shots. thanks for sharing in here. hope someday can visit Ireland.My WW : in here Thanks
Never been to that one, Jams! Thanks. Great pictures.
Is that another one of those structures built with no mortar? You had one a week or two ago that had been standing like that for several hundred years, and this looks like the same period. Must have been a very imposing place in its day, eh?Very cool series!-Mojo
It is amazing how these structures remain so intact after such a length of time! Great shots :)Happy WW :) My WW entries for today are at:Pastyme With Good CompanyeThe Paranormal BlogNuttin' ButPlease stop by if you have a moment :)
very cool Jams, I clicked the link to learn some history. I love the kind of stuff.
What a fabulous stone structure! Love the setting, too! Hope your week is going well Jams...
Hi James, this is a neat old fort. I read about it in the Wikipedia link and see that we must have driven right past it a couple of times doint the Ring of Kerry. I do not remember any signs or notes on the maps or our little guide book either. I wonder how far off the rode it is, I will check.Thank you for peeking in on my 'sleeping dog.'..
That's a very interesting looking fort and what a perfect setting.
The green is stunning and I love the color and texture of the fort. Seems like a wonderful place!
Looks like a really interesting place to visit!
What an interesting shape! I love stone structures and this is no exception!
What an awesome fort. The stone work is truly unique and amazing.
I must get to Ireland one day!!!My W W is posted. It's not too exciting this week, but it's up. LOL Won't you stop by and visit if you can find time?
Boy, it does look impossible to take! I see something like that and just turn around... :-)My WW post: Popcorn on wheels
One of my wishes is to go to Ireland so I will see amazing sites like this fort plus the greenery that surrounds it. A great WW post.
I've never seen a Fort before. Thanks for sharing :)

That is so neat. THanksHappy WW!
Amazing! I am planning our trip to Ireland now, would love to see this in person!! Any sites you think we shouldn't miss that aren't typical tourist sites?
What a great old stone fort. I love the contrast of the stone and the ruins to the deep green hills.The landscape in these photos always has a very stark quality to it that I find intriguing. Well done, as always.
Wow, that's an impressive stone fort - it juts out of the greens! I'm sure this was built stone by stone and with bare hands.
Really wonderful. I don't know which I like more, the marvelous stone fort, or the very wonderful greener-than-green Irish landscape in the background.
OK, I've been to your beautiful country only once, but your pictures make me want to go again and again. I loved the two weeks my sister and I spent there, but look, you are always showing more wonderful places we should have gone. Beautiful as always!
WOW! Jams, I love it!! I've got to go get some sleep, but think I will research this place in the morning. It looks so interesting.See Reflecting on Wordless Wednesday , or my whole blog I Was Born2Cree8.
