  • The Dunbeg Fort is just a few stone structures and some ring moats. I believe one should be very interested in early age settlings to get more than a vague impression of the use and functions of the b...  more »
  • We were amazed that something so old could still be standing. Ireland is full of history, and the Dingle peninsula is filled with interesting artifacts such as this.  more »
  • We have only visited the Fort, the prospect because of and for photos of sea and cliffs. You can see an Infofilm. In the Stonehouse, there are good Applepie!

  • 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.
