The Fahan Beehive Huts can be found on Slea Head, which is part of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. Here, there is a fascinating collection clochans, or beehive huts, some of which are underground and others standing.

The Fahan Beehive Huts comprises 19 souterrain and 18 standing clochans (beehive huts). There are also inscribed stones, sculptured crosses and earthen ring forts, all located on the Dingle Peninsula’s Slea Head Road in County Kerry.

The fascinating beehive huts are characteristic of the area and owe their shape to the ancient method of construction known as drystone corbelling.
