It was a dream to see this place. Prehistoric and crumbling. A bit of a trek for some but worth every step. The sense of history is overwhelming. It is full of warnings as the ring is partial and the open side drops off into the ocean. It is dramatic!

Dun Aengus is awe-inspiring and unlike anything I had ever experienced. The entrance is right down the lane from Kilmurvey House and it is free if you tell them you are staying there. You also have the advantage of being able to go up Dun Aengus as soon as the Visitor Center opens, before the tour boats arrive. Likewise, you... More

Nothing can prepare you for this site!! We had a lovely clear sunny day to walk through the centre of this small community, past the house that was used as a pub/hotel in the film 'Leap Year', and up towards the monument that is 'Dun Aengus'. It is a 15-20 minute walk and then you arrive at the point where... More

Having made it to this island, you can't pass up the opportunity to visit this amazing site. It takes about 20 minutes to walk there from the visitors centre and you are rewarded with a spectacular view. I've seen many TV programmes featuring this site but it can't replicate the thrill of being there and staring out over that very... More

This was a lovely trip. We arrived on bicycles. There is a gorgeous Cafe just before your head up and the food in it is really nice. The shops there are lovely too.

It's a moderate bike ride an then a hike for this great fort and magnificent view. Worth the effort to see these old ruins.

If u have good weather, great site. Little bit of hike and u need cash but beautiful scenes and great bit of history. Bring cash to get in and visit local shops on the way to get local gifts and sweaters.

If you go to this and don't like it, there is something wrong with you. This was really one of the most magnificent things I have ever seen, and even though I went a bit ago, it always sticks out in my mind.

like so many things on Inishmore, I didn't know the whole story, but that in no way diminished the fantastical experience of visiting this fort.

a trip to the Aran Islands is not complete without a bicycle ride to this extraordinary view of the sea. The sea will draw you in so no need to be too close to the edge. Magnificent stone edifices and excellent hiking and resting under the sun.
