Clochans are the distinctive beehive huts built of stone that were used as monk's cells in medival Ireland. Many are on offshore islands such as Bishop's Island, Co. Clare, High Island, Co. Galway, Innishmurray, Co. Sligo, and the breathtakingly beautiful Skellig Michael, Co. Kerry. There are many more accessible ones on the Dingle peninsula, including the delightful Gallarus Oratory.
