This is a photo of the remains of St. Kevin's cell which looks out over the upper lake at Glendalough, in the Wicklow Mountains south of Dublin, in Ireland. It was originally a beehive hut. Kevin is the most famous religious figure to emerge from Glendalough, somewhere around 500-600 AD. The monastery there was a major focus of trade and travel in the region, since the ancient Irish did not build cities or towns. All that remains now of Kevin's Cell is a few foundation stones, surrounded by oak trees. (Thanks to http://planetpotato.blogs.com/)
