Gallarus Oratory, County Kerry
The Gallarus Oratory, a small, stone built chapel in the shape of an up-turned boat is one of the most famous landmarks on the Dingle Peninsula. The Oratory is built of stone without mortar, using “corbel vaulting”, a technique developed by Neolithic tomb-makers. The Oratory is a national monument in the care of the Office of Public Works and may be viewed free of charge.
Located beside the Gallarus Oratory, you will find the Gallarus Oratory Visitor Centre. Visitors can enjoy an audio/visual display, which looks at the surrounding area, a shop offering souvenirs and some refreshments.
