The Black Fort



We had several hours on Inis Mor, and so hiked out to Dun Duchathair, the Black Fort. It’s neither as obviously spectacular nor as popular as Dun Aengus, so it’s a good place to avoid the crowds.

This prehistoric, semi-circular cliff fort has a harrowing entrance along the cliff edge. It also contains the remains of several stone buildings. They still make for good shelter from the wind for a nap or picnic, and so we settled down in one and enjoyed a lunch of brown bread and smoked mackerel.
