Ardara Ring Fort

The Irish name for Ardara is "Ard a' Rátha" which means "The height of the fort". It is from the town's fort that Ardara gets its name. The fort is a ring fort and is situated on the Glenties Road (The N56). Forts, in ancient times, were used by locals as look-out points to watch for invaders, or the enemy. The site on which the fort stands, commands a beautiful view of a large area of West Donegal....panoramic views at its best!
