Having my own private gladiator moment #areyounotentertained (Ireland charges you €6 to look off a cliff but you can just run around a 1500 year old ring fort, for free, all by yourselves 🤷‍♀️)

"Ring Fort Island of Lough Doon"

Doon Fort is an ancient ring fort which is hidden away on this small island on ‘Lough Doon’

This has to be the most amazing yet inaccessible monuments I've visited in all Ireland! Miles away from anywhere in the middle of a lake surrounded by miles of marshy bogland. It makes me wonder on how did our ancestors build such complex heavy stone forts? and how did they transport all this stone here 3000 years ago? Especially when I could hardly hike to it without stopping to rest every few minutes. Ireland can be very mysterious & that's what drives my passion to gather these scenes for you all 😊

This stone fort dating back to 3000 BC has walls standing about 4.5 metres high & 3.6 metres thick at the base. It covers the island almost completely. Within the fort are steps terraces and passages. The ancient ruins of "Doon Fort" are evidence that this area has been inhabited for many centuries. It’s construction methods are similar to other Irish dry-stone wall forts such as Dun Aengus (Aran Islands) & An Grainan Aileach (Burt, Co.Donegal)

Doon Fort is sometimes called ‘The Bawan’ or ‘The O’Boyle Fort’ as according to local legend the O’Boyle family occupied the fort ‪from the 10th to the 16th‬ centuries. The last O’Boyle chieftain Conor O’Boyle was slain here at the fort in the year 1530 by a rival O’Boyle group.

Dun Aengus (or Dún Aonghasa) is one of the oldest stone forts in Western Europe. Originally built around 6,000 years ago, Dun Aengus was built to defend a small settlement on the largest of the Aran Islands, Inis Mor. It then fell into disuse as the islands became abandoned. Dun Aengus would be used during the Medieval ages as a Christian monastery. Dun Aengus is unique for its age but also its location. It is situated directly ontop of the cliff overlooking the Atlantic. Each year a little part of the fort falls into the ocean as the cliff recedes. Dun Aengus is without a doubt one of the most spectacular locations I've seen on this trip. The location and history combine to create a truly fantastic experience.

Images captured at Lisnabreeny Rath (or "Ringfort") from September 2017, taken as reference for a current illustration project. This spot overlooks Belfast on the highest point of the Castlereagh Hills. The townland of Lisnabreeny comes from the Irish Lios na Bruighne, often translated as "fort of the fairy palace". #ringfort #ireland #sidhe #reference #photography
