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.

Although we were there on a cloudy, dreary day the views were still amazing. The ring fort sits atop a hill just a stone’s throw from the Northern Ireland border. It is clear why the ring fort was built here as it affords sweeping views of the surrounding area. It is located not too far off the N13. There is... 更多

The fort is easy to find off the main road. We were lucky to go on a really sunny clear day and the views were absolutely amazing. A really good ancient site. We noted that there was work being done on the site to improve access for the less mobile with ramps and steps being built. The site is mostly... 更多

Unfortunately this interesting historical site is not so easy to find as signposting along the road is insufficient. But when you found it you are rewarded by an amazing structure of stones wich were just piled upon each other but has survived 2500 years, built to last... Apart from the fort, the view from the hilltop is also worth the... 更多

The Grianan Aileach Ring Fort is a short taxi ride outside Derry. It was built at about the same time, and is similar to, Dun Angus in the Aran islands. Around the 15th century it was also used as a base by one of the local Gaelic chieftains. You can see why: it is sited on a hill with 360... 更多

I am fascinated by Irish stone forts and have made visits to Staigue, Cahergall, Leacanabualie... So when I had the opportunity to visit Grianan of Aileach, one of the largest structures, I was thrilled. A spectacular 360 degree view and we were fortunate to visit on a clear, but cold, day. Beautiful vistas in every direction, the Inishowen Pennisula, the... 更多

This was a fascinating structure. The entrances is still under construction. There is a car park for about 20 cars. They are building a great ramp from the car park. You can walk up, through and onto the structure. It has 4.5 meter thick walls, and a very narrow entrance. There are 3 levels above ground and the stairs are... 更多

Despite being our coldest stop of the trip, this was truly a highlight. It was sunny, windy, minimal clouds. You could see straight around 360 degrees as far as the eye could see. The fort itself was actually a rebuild to its probable original state but very interesting to climb and walk around and get a feel for the ancient... 更多

Amazing views! Would be nice to get a wee bit more information on its history. But truly worth a visit. A steep walk up the hill if closed to traffic but worth it! You can almost feel the Celts around you!

WOW! This place is amazing. It is the 2,000 year old ring Fort that was the stronghold of the O'Donnell clan. It took my breath away. First of all, there's the views - high above everything with 360 views of the countryside and the ocean beyond, absolutely gorgeous. Then just the fact that they were able to build this in... 更多
