Gallarus Oratory is a fine
boat-shaped structure with a narrow doorway with inclined jambs.
It is the only perfect
example of its type to survive in Ireland. There is a small round-headed east window. Just
above the doorway on the inside are two hinge-stones.
The walls are about 1m
thick and internally the oratory measures about 5m by 3m by 5m high.
Close to the building is a
stone about 1m high and inscribed with a cross within a ring, as well as some writing. the
remains stand within an oval enclosure about 36m by 44m.
