"Kilmalkedar" Top 5 Page for this destination Dingle Tip by globetrott
Dingle, Ireland: 26 reviews and 40 photos
Kilmalkedar ( Cill Maolcheadair ) is mostly totally overseen by the tourists exploring Dingle Peninsula. That is a pity because a visit there can easily be combined with "Gallarus Oratory" that is just a few miles from there. In Kilmalkedar you will see a famous "Ogham-stone" and this famous early celtic cross.
The celtic cross on the left was made of 1 piece of stone and the ogham-stone on the right of my picture is that small needle-like stone, that even has a small hole drilled in on the top. Such ogham-stones were taken as a calender maybe, but scientists are not really sure about it.
You can see all of these sights free of charge and all day long without any restrictions !
Address: Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry
Directions: The small church of Kilmalkedar with its famous cross and Ogham-stone is in a short distance east of Gallarus Oratory ! Dingl is North of Killorglin, West of Tralee, South of Shannon, on the West Coast.
