25/01/2012 - Gallarus Oratory, One of the finest examples of an early Christian Church to be found in Ireland. Dating from 800 AD, This small oratory, built without mortar, uses corbel vaulting a technique developed by Neolithic tomb-makers. It is dimly lit, with only a tiny window opposite the entrance door. Shaped like an upturned boat this miniature church overlooks the harbour at Smerwick on the Dingle Peninsula
