Staigue Fort

Hiking Highlight

  • Mareike

    Meter-high, sturdy stone walls were once supposed to protect a clan head or some other powerful person here. The facility dates from the Iron Age, before Christianity came to Ireland. You get in through a narrow and low opening in the wall. Once inside, you can let your imagination run wild: there were probably several houses and other buildings as well as tents standing close together in the limited, safe space.

  • Built 2000 years ago on a hill. Nice panorama and a small cafe nearby.

  • Entry 1 € pp. Is supposed to be the best preserved. Parking is free of charge. There is even a toilet. If you are looking, you will also find free ones that are equally well preserved.
    The forts used to be home to wealthier peasants or less influential lords.
