Heritage Week, West Wicklow’s Ancient Hill Forts

High in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains, around the West Wicklow town of Baltinglass, lie some of the most remarkable remains of ancient civilisation in the world.

This area, extending across mountains like Baltinglass Hill, Spynans, Kilranelagh, and beyond, contains the greatest concentration of prehistoric hillforts in Europe.

There are many other monuments too, from Neolithic tombs to stone circles. It is a place of immense beauty and profound archaeological significance, nationally and internationally.
