    We happened along this castle as we walked The Dingle Way. It sits overlooking the shore and the cliffs on the other side. Peaceful place for a snack and what a gorgeous view.  more »

    Lovely location, although beach access is difficult. The castle itself is on private land, and can only be viewed at distance. Still a lovely cove.

    You can't actually get near the castle. There's a really nice stoney beach and walk ways next to it.

    Impressive huge natural storm formed beach and beautiful view. The castle remains are not much and look like part of it might cave in anytime. The history behind it is interesting and my wife and are are thankful we drove out to see it and would recommend this stop to others.

    The Castle stands in privately own grounds and as such is inaccessible to the public.

Where to stay in Dingle

Dingle Town represents a relaxed, artistic destination known for having plenty of affordable bed and breakfasts and other specialty accommodations. Many of these cluster right in the town's center, although the town also has a number of hotels, hostels, and other lodging for tourists. Here it's even normal to stumble upon a pub offering accommodation. A more luxurious (and often costly) option for travelers taking in the beauty of this peninsula is to stay in a scenic guesthouse overlooking Dingle Bay, which you can find in or right outside of town.
