- Beehive Huts, Dingle Peninsula -
(Click thumbnail images)|
Almost directly across the road from Dunbeg are a series of "Ringforts" known as Beehive Huts which have stood there for over 4,000 years. It's hard to imagine that these piles of loose stones have been sitting there that long. They were in habited from ancient times until about 1200 AD. The stones were piled in a downward and outward manner, so as to funnel rain water away from the interior.
