  • You look a bit like all these strong but they are all unique and their details for both different landscapes. This is also a treat and well worth the detour of a few kilometers to get there.

  • This 9th Centuary protected farmstead is thought to have been owned by the local chieftain, and it is a real gem hidden in plain sight. Far below the view point where all the coaches look at it from, the fort is located at the end of a thin single track road, with space for just two, possibly three cars, so no coaches visit, and few tourist feel comfortable driving a rental down such a thin road. As such it is rarely visited and is never crowded. Access is very good, there is a well maintained path, but inside the ground is a little uneven. Imagine having a real historic piece of Ireland to yourself, throw in a clear view of Skellig Michael for good measure, and you get an idea of just how special a place it is.
  • Scenic location for well maintained 9th Century circular stone fort. Worth checking out. Just outside Waterville.
  • A bit hidden but is super well maintained. Worth a visit
  • This fort is well worth a visit and is accessed from the main Ring of Kerry road along a single lane road. There is a small car park with a path leading to the fort and an information display at the entrance. There is no fee to visit and it was very inspiring to my young children.
  • Remote and untouched. amazing example of ancient technology
