We were there during the Irish heat wave! HOT. Lots of people. Wear comfy shoes. take water. View is awesome. Take your time in the museum and read so you'll know the details. There is no guide.

Such a special place. My tip: when you make it to the edge of the cliff, look right and you will see what is sort of a stone bench at the base of a wall. Sit right on the edge of the cliff looking down the coastline for one of the finest views in Ireland. Heck, bring a beverage, sit... More

My daughter and I took the ferry over in the morning and since it was still cool out, we sat below and took a cat nap as the waves lulled us back to sleep. However, once we got off the ferry, the island was already full of life and we chose to take a car up to the trail head... More

Nice seaview. Interesting facts surrounding Dun aonghasa but it started to rain on way up so was kinda slippy at times but it is the furthest tip on the island and is definitely one place to go.

Visited the Aran Islands visiting Inis Mor which is the biggest Island of the three. We hired bikes at a cost of €10 per bike on the pier when getting off the ferry. The bikes brought us to the top of Dun Aengus in about 35mins. When we got as far as you could go on the bike ,we walked... More

It's like a picture postcard, amazing! Easy to get to and a few quid in, well worth it for the view and pictures.

Visited the island in July and finally got around to visiting Dun Aengus. We went a bit later in the day so apparently it wasn't quite as crowded up there according to the guy working in the visitors centre at the bottom of the hill. Once you get up there it is really beautiful. Especially on a sunny day when... More

This is a fantastic place to visit .There is a 20 minute walk from the visitors centre to the fort but it is well worth the walk .The views are really good and it is possible to view the cliffs down along the island .You also get a feel for the history of the fort.

The remains of Dun Aengus still seem to be a mystery! But the visitors center was nice and had minimal information about what they know of the pre-historic Fort. Built on the edge of a cliff looking out to the Atlantic, it is breath taking and one can literally walk up to the edge! You can drive, bike, or hike... More
