Caherconnell Stone Fort, situated 1km (0.6mi) south of Poulnabrone dolmen in the heart of the Burren Ireland, offers you the opportunity to visit an exceptionally well preserved example of the stone forts or stone ringforts, which are to be found in the Burren in Ireland. The fort is in its original state. Its position, overlooking virtually all-surrounding areas suggests a defensive settlement. Ringforts such as Caherconnell are thought to have been inhabited from 400-1200 AD.

Your visit to Caherconnell begins in the graphic display area. Here you will receive the background information on the forts and tombs of the Burren. The next stage in your journey is an Audio visual presentation which revolves around the fort, its people, history, archaeology, and flora. There is also a short history of other local monuments including the ancient megalithic tombs of Poulnabrone Dolmen and Poulawack Cairn. The graphic display area expands on these topics and also gives more detailed information on other monuments in the area from a similar perspective.

Additional visitor facilities include the cozy Caherconnells Mountain Haven Cafe which is situated overlooking the impressive Caherconnell valley. And there is also a craft shop where you will find an assortment of wares produced by some of Irelands finest crafts people.
