Situated around 30 miles from Dublin City, North east of the village of Nobber lies some pretty woodland and rural scenery. There is a Danish Fort located near the town which is well worth visiting. Nobber is well known as the birthplace of Carolan a famous Irish harper, he was born in 1670 and developed blindness from an early age but still went on to be one of the most famous Irish musicians of his time. In this little village in 1670, Turlough O Carolan was born. He was the last of the great Irish harpists.
