  • Of the stone force that we went to, this was the best one. Had a great view of the walk up to it. I like the fact that you can climb to the top of the stone for and look down on it.
  • We liked this fort very much. It, a great place to have a photo of yourself taken. We used a tripod and remote control of the camera though a smartphone app to take are photo on the stairs on the wall on the opposite side of the ring fort.
  • Great little place to visit, follow the signs from Cahersiveen to the old forts and eventually continue down the road until you find the car park on the side of the road. From here you can access two forts and both aren't too far. There could be more done on highlighting the history with some more signs but then again they just might not know. Great place to climb around and take some fun shots and see some great scenery.
  • I was really impressed by the architecture. It is worth seeing!
  • Large stone fort. Great place to bring the kids. It's free to visit. Interesting ancient stucture. Great views of local landscape from the top of the walls. Easy 2 minute walk from car park.
