Not far from Gallarus Oratory I saw this interesting stone-age village , consisting of several houses, also called clochans. These buildings are quite usual in that area and they were built by heaping up stones and rocks of all sizes, forming a flat and narrow house, only the roofs are missing today, obviously they had roofs made of straw. There is a fence around these buildings, BUT of course you may climb over it and take a closer look at these great remains !
