This is a must stop! Unplanned detour, followed the sign 4km down a narrow road but well worth it. Not crowded at all, a measly 1 euro to enter (honor system). My boys had a blast climbing all over and finding storage rooms to burrow...More

Literally awesome. To think it’s been there for 2500 years...and has lasted. They don’t build things like they used to. Worth the drive.

Staigue Fort is one of the ancient attractions along the Ring of Kerry and, in our view, likely one of the best. The Fort is located along the south to south eastern end of the ring, in an area we thought was among the best...More

This is a pretty impressive round, stone fort. It’s fairly large and you can walk inside, around some stair cases, in some little storerooms. No one was there when we went. It’s a fairly long drive down a single lane road, by some farms and...More

Arrived late in day circa 845p but was still light because of summer. Had the whole place to ourselves, which was nice. Saw Cahergill Stone Fort that same morning, and this is is steeper and scarier. Liked Cahergill better.

Absolutely incredible to be able to visit an ancient structure. Its off the beaten track but well worth the drive along some small country roads to take a visit. A donation box of entry via a gate, a short walk up a slope takes you...More

There is A windy thin road leading up to the fort but it is totally worth the drive. There is A car park which is handy. There is A honesty box where you have to pay €1 per group/person. There is then an information board....More
