The beehives date back 2,000 years. They really give a good look at an ancient society. It is unbelievable how well they were built.

You don't need to go out to the islands to see the ancient beehice huts - they are right here! Amazing place to visit and get a sense of the seclusion of the monastic community centuries ago. Great place for kids.

If you're driving the Atlantic road and have a few minutes, this is an interesting stop. It is run by one of the local farmers and is quite quaint. For 3 euro you can hike up about 150 meters or so and see these beehive...More

Try to imagine yourself living in one of these. This is really nice history. And the view from the Huts is impressive.

More interesting stone structures near Dingle. Probably from the 11th century. Amazing was the early Irish could do with stone in buidling their stone corbelled dwellings

All around peninsula are archeological sites from long time BC. Very impresive buildings and fortifications as well of primeval peoples from made from stone which looks like big beehives. We never see its before.

The huts are ancient and constructed of overlapping stone. You can wander in and out of them. There is a toilet at the start of the somewhat steep hike up to the huts . Note the request that you leave the door closed so the...More

The Beehive Huts are about 750 metres West of Dun Beag Fort on the Slea Head Drive, West of Dingle. The parking is on the Atlantic Ocean side and you need to cross the road to get to the Huts. It's a couple of Euros to get... More
