Aran Islands, Ireland

I'm really astonished by Ireland and its beauty, but I rarely have a chance to receive postcards from there. This is one of few cards I have.

Dun Duchathair, meaning ''black stone ringfort'', is a large stone fort on Inishmore (one of the Aran Islands) in County Galway, Ireland. Due to erosion, it now sits on a rocky promontory that stretches out into the sea. On its outer side there are large walls, reaching 6 meters high and 5 meters wide. On the inside are the ruins of various rooms, possibly ''beehive'' hurs. There is also evidence of a cheval de frise protecting the entrance.
