  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful stone fort. Great place to bring children. Free entry and 2 minute walk, up a very gradual incline from the carpark.
  • Remote, wild and wonderful. Reconstructed ancient ring fort. Date seems uncertain, but probably 1000-1500 years old. Extensively rebuilt, but excellent quality workmanship on the rebuilding. Two ring forts are close together and also visit the ruined castle nearby.
