  • Beautiful views of the Dingle Cliffs. The castle its perked right over the water, some damage but still in proper condition
  • Great ruined castle with lots of atmosphere and great to take some wonderful photos. Overlooking a lovely little beach and magnificent scenery all around!
  • 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 drove out to see it and would recommend this stop to others.
  • Got married here (with the permission of the property owner, it's on private land). This spot has everything the Irish countryside has to offer: castle ruins, grazing livestock, rock walls, sea-battered cliffs, and a sandy hidden beach. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Beautiful location. Of course the castle has seen better days, but when you see those ruins you are dragged somewhere into the medieval era. Bring your camera with you.
