Caherdooneerish: At a height of about 210 metres above Black Head this fort is worth the climb up from the coast road for the Burren flora and the view over Galway Bay alone. The fort is built on a level piece of limestone karst and is roughly D-shaped. There is a terrace and traces of stairs. It is about 20 metres in diameter with jointed walls over 4 metres high and almost as thick in places. The stonework - of beautiful fissured Burren limestone - is better on the north and east sides than on the south and west, which, together with the irregularity of shame, suggests unskilful rebuilding at various times.
