The Celtic Sea, Beehive Huts & Galorus Oratory in County Kerry
Everything is made of stone in Ireland but this is over the top!
The fascinating Beehive Huts of Ireland. These have been found all
over the country. A man sitting in a small trailer collected 2 euro
per person for entry into the back of his farm to see these. The flyer
he gave us said that these were built in the Early Christian Period
and inhabited from ancient times to 1200 AD.

This is the view from the huts.
A seagull and I exchanging a look as we drive by. Note how close we
are to the rock wall.
This gives you an idea of how narrow these roads are. You can just
barely see the other side of the road on the right hand side.

A road sign one should pay attention to!

The Galarus Oratory, a stone church built by early Christians sometime
between the seventh and twelfth centuries.
Never mind the geek in the doorway; notice the tight contstruction
of the stones. This structure was built entirely without mortar and
is still completely watertight.

He's such a rebel.
