  • Unless you are hiking the Dingle Way, you might not find this old castle ruin. It is really just a broken bit of a tower, cordoned off so that you can't get too close, but it overlooks a beautiful san...  more »
  • Minard Castle is a place we visit every time we come to Dingle. It is out of the way and hard to find but well worth the effort. We are usually alone and it is so peaceful and fun.  more »
  • It's tough to find, get a map. Worth the trip. Nice view, fun beach. Wear sturdy shoes to climb the rocks. Decent parking too.  more »

  • 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.
