We continued our tour of the Dingle loop (Dingle Peninsula) at the Bee Hive huts from 2000 BC
The walk up to the huts
What is so impressive about these huts is that there is no mortar holding them together. It is just simply rocks stacked on top of one another that have stood for over 4,000 years!
Here we are inside one of the huts that is missing its roof
Such an amazing view
Just before Ryan mooned me...he wouldn’t let me post that picture though!!
Taking in all the beauty
Down the road a little bit over looking the beach
Walking up to the Gallarus Oratory
The Gallarus Oratory is an early Christian church that was built around 1,300 years ago
Ryan acting like Vanna White
The graveyard next to the Oratory
Ryan making a total Jon face
At the ruins of the Kilmalkedar church built in the 12th century
An early Christian cross that has been made oddly proportionate due to the rising graves, kinda creepy that they're rising up!
Also in the graveyard of the Kilmalkedar church is a much older ogham stone. The stone stood here 900 years before the church and is the reason that the church was built at this location.
The stones age is unknown but centuries ago a hole was drilled into the top so people could come to seal a deal or renew your vows.
While standing on the graves of your ancestors and in front of the house of God, you swear to god by touching thumbs through this stone.
Being respectful of the dead. I was also pretty sure there was a rattle snake in there!
After finishing the Dingle loop we were off to Dublin, but not without having to ask for directions of coarse!
