The Ringfort at Danestown County Meath is without doubt one of the most impressive ringforts I have visited. The inner raised circular platform is over four metres high with a deep fosse (ditch), pictured right and outer bank, the outer bank is over two metres high in places. The ringfort has a diameter of about 150 feet.

Situated: From Ashbourne drive 12 kilometres north on the N2, then take a left turn at Balrath cross-roads, signposted Navan. After two kilometres take a left turn, the ringfort can be seen in the field on your immediate right. Take the next right turn and drive around to the house next to the fort.
