Really impressive how well this dry stone fort has held up, and the views are amazing. We were lucky to go when there was hardly anyone there. It's a nice little walk up to the fort, and then there's the other fort just a short...More

Nice, but completely rebuilt, spoils any feeling of time one should get when visiting an ancient structure.

Just trying to find somewhere to go after lunch at Cahersiveen, did not expect much but it was spectacular and fun to climb around the fort!

Free entry and very interesting how it was built. Can get quite busy as the buses all seem to stop at this attraction. Get there early and you should miss the rush.

Our B&B hosts recommended coming here and we were not disappointed. It's an amazing site to see after a short walk from the parking area. It's open all day so you can walk around and explore at your leisure. There are sheep and cows surrounding...More

This is a wonderful and well kept fort. you can walk around the walls on what seem like steps or seating. It is a lovely place to walk around. No paid entry no sales people just show up and walk around.

I find old things fascinating and this was no exception. Over 1000 years old with unknown history. It is so impressive (even though some parts restored.). And a few pastures over is another one. So cool! Follow the signs for the barracks and continue past....More

No crowds. No ticket booth. No salesmen. A hill fort in excellent condition (as someone said, don't mess with a fairy ring!) though the good descriptive board tells us that some of the upper layers were reconstructed by archaeologists in the 1990's. There's a series...More

The stonework of this fort is amazing... every stone fits perfectly. A truly historic piece of architecture! Worth the stop. (and it's free)
