  • The drive around the Dingle Penninsula was lovely, but after having seen many other rock forts, this one did not particularly amaze.

  • Awesome little fort that sits on the cliffs over the Dingle peninsula. Unfortunately most of it has fallen into the ocean. Well with the three Euro to view though
  • Very cool piece of history, and it's really only worth it if you watch the video of the fort and it's history in the information center. The video is 10 minutes long and is surprisingly high quality.
  • Not tonnes to see but it's a historically import place and nice to see how the people there lived.
  • The entry fee is 3 euro. You get to see a short film & get a leaflet describing the history of the fort and nearby antique structures. Worth seeing if for nothing else then the cliff view from the fort
  • This was interesting to see. Talk to the staff at the visitor center, and watch their good video. The site is being severely damaged by storms, as it sits right on the edge of the cliff. It is worth the small cost to stop and see.
