This place is fantastic. Out in the middle of nowhere. When you arrive you need to pay entrance to cross the threshold! €1 roughly. It's big, vast, and wide depth walls yo walk around. No cafe nearby that's open all year, but we had a...More

We stumbled across a sign and decided to go the 4 km off the main road and so glad we did. It was a wet showery day, and the road in is windy and narrow but very doable. This is an ancient fort, with an...More

Located between Sneem and Waterville, this place is worth a visit. It offers a spectacular view of the Iveragh Peninsula, if you dare to brave vertigo by climbing over the wall. Inside the enclosure, you will enjoy a meditative calm. I really appreciated!

Visible on approach, this old time fort looks imposing. Narrow road takes you to the site. €1 donation expected. The walk to it is on a mild incline but just 100 metres. The fortress can be entered and the walls walked on. Very scenic. Recommended.

If you are travelling the Ring this is a must see stop. This fort was truly our highlight and favourite part of our tour around the ring. The road up to the Fort is very narrow so be careful! It is about 20 min drive...More
