This portal to the Otherworld: a place of being for the Celts, where life existed, but not as we know it!
The portal is the Old Fairy House, which was once the gateway to Kilronan castle.
This ethereal looking gatehouse was created many years ago, when only horses and carriages travelled the roads of the west of Ireland.
It was built in the vernacular tradition, using water worn limestone hewn from the surrounding earth.
Many years have passed since a horse or carriage passed by…
The entrance is no longer a part of the old estate.
Here it stands, watching the centuries pass by, unimpressed by progress…and perhaps, if stones could talk…
I have a notion to bring my video camera with me next time…would you like a video of this enchanting place?
Below is a beautiful video with music…Fairy Reel…enjoy!
