  • Even in the fog this place is fantastic!!! Great views along the cliffs and even a little waterfall on the one side that goes out to the ocean! Very peaceful... One of my favorite stops in our whole cross-country trip! Worth stopping!!! Parking is across the road. Was very glad I wore my rainboots - it was muddy and slippery in spots; 2 of my friends fell in the mud :(
  • Interesting historic site with information pertaining to how the people lived here and defended their families and self.
  • It's pretty nice, if you are close to it, pay a visit!
  • Wonderful views and great history. Easy to get to and stop for a quick lesson in history. Overall a great spot to visit!
  • It feels like a rip getting charged 3 euro at each stop along the Dingle loop bike, but this was a cool place and the video acted as sort of an introduction to the other sites along the route.
