Legend says it was built by the ancient gods; the ring fort was known as the Sun Palace and was held sacred. Traces of ancient earthworks, dating to the early Iron Age, surround the fort, enclosing an area of about 5 acres (0.02 km2). The fort itself was probably built in the early centuries of the Christian era. From the 5th to the 12th century AD it served as the royal seat of the O Neill sept of Aileach; it was destroyed by Murtogh O Brien, king of Munster in 1101. To make the demolition complete, the king ordered each of his soldiers to take away a stone from the fort. Grianan of Aileach was reconstructed by Dr Bernard of Derry in 1870, but archaeologists are doubtful about the inner restoration.

    Surrounding the stone fort are three concentric low walls which formed part of the original fortification of the fort.

I live quite close to this beautiful attraction, but always enjoy spending some time there. Spectacular views over 3 counties, Donegal, Derry & Tyrone not to mention the beautiful Lough Swilly. # tip - remember to take a handy pair of binoculars.

What I loved about this place is it took me into another world. I imagined I was there myself many many years ago...It is worth a visit if you are passing. Im not sure if I would go out of my way to visit. Very beautiful and maybe we are spoilt for choice in Donegal.

The Grianan of Aileach (Irish: Grianán Ailigh, sometimes anglicised as Greenan Ely or Greenan Fort) is a hillfort atop the 244 metres (801 ft) high Greenan Mountain at Inishowen in County Donegal, Ireland. The main structure is a stone ringfort, thought to have been built by the Northern Uí Néill, in the sixth or seventh century CE;[1] although there is... 更多

Ok, the view was fantastic; a great 360 from up high. I confess I don't know the full historical story on this place; an ancient Irish fort (it was hailing when we visited so we didn't stay long).... But it was what seemed a great ancient fort; nothing built up around it; with a good guide i'm sure you could... 更多

Grianan of Aileach or "ring fort' is located between Derry and Letterkenny. It is a little difficult to find but well worth it. Went in October, 2016 and we were the only people there. Interesting history; 3000 B.C. similar to Newgrange outside Dublin but unlike Newgrange they lived here and had a view of the entire County of Donegal and... 更多

You have to visit this site. Must have the most spectacular views in Ireland. We went today when the mountains as far as the eye could see were snow topped. I will never forget this special place.

We stopped by on the way down from Malin Head on our way to Donegal Town, and are glad we stopped. This stone circle fort is very remote, but Google maps took us right to the entrance. We were lucky to be there on a beautiful October afternoon, with only a few other visitors. There is no fee to visit,... 更多

It was a short walk up to have an amazing view of Inishowen. Had a lovely time climbing up the fort and walking the 360 degrees of view.

Perched up high, offering 360 degree views, it is not hard to understand why this spot was chosen for the construction of this ancient ring fort. Thought to have been destroyed by the invading Normans, it was reconstructed in the late 19th century and is an excellent example of this form of fortification. It is located well off the main... 更多
