Baltimore ringfort, Co Cork

Baltimore ringfort commands impressive views of the coast from its location 15m above Church Strand Bay, north of Baltimore village.

It is one of a number of ringforts and promontory forts in the Roaringwater/ Long Island Bay area. Ringforts are residential enclosures dating to the early medieval period. The size and location of the Baltimore ringfort suggests a site of some significance that may even have had earlier origins.
