    Interesting little hill fort on the edge of the cliff. Don't expect a vast amount and it won't take too much of your time. Fantastic views from the cliffs. Hurry... will be eroding soon  more »

    Great view on the old Fort, of which not much is left. There are much nicer places in Ireland and you can save yourself the €3

    If you are really into history you may enjoy visiting this place. But before walking down to the fort, get you 3 euro ticket and go to the visitor centre across the road to watch a short movie about the fort. It will give you a better ideia of how those ruins where like ages ago.

    AMAZING. The information given during the A/V session was helpful, the fort was great to check out, amazing views & cool history all at once.

    Very good example of an iron age ringfort. Don't miss the audio visual presentation on the other side of the road, which is included in the admission price.

    There is really not much to see. Much of the fort fell into the ocean in 2014 and what remains looks like the outline of a stone house. The underground tunnels were also closed as well as the 10 min video which was down for the season. The lady still charged us 3 euro each. Not worth it.

    Good bit of ancient history. Built 500 years b.c.
