I hadn't heard of these before and had to look them up on Wikipedia. When they were intact they certainly resembled a bee hive!

The building process reminds me of the igloos the Inuit build here in Canada, although those, of course are built out of ice.

Barry,
Visiting the beehive huts were one of our favorite adventures in Ireland. I have to admit I had never heard of them until we pulled up to them. I have read a little bit about them now, but I think I will pop over to wikipedia to learn a little bit more :)

The best example of these is actually in Leitrim but not many find it:) It is totally intact.

My daughter went to see them when she was in Ireland...yes, SHE went and I have never been! Someday my love, I'll be there as well...

Oh aren't they stone age? I'd love to poke round them too as I'm still researching the stone age for my novel that I'm writing.
