The path up was rocky & steep for me (65 & out of shape) & I stopped & sat 3 times on the rock wall to rest. I made it to the top & was so glad I kept going. Too scared to get near the edge but took some great photos! Going down was slow for me as I... More

Great, short hike up to the top with terrific history and great views. However! Rocks are veryyyyyy slippery when walking down. I do not recommend this for elders at all (seen too many slips)

I went on a tour upon arriving on the island and was dropped off by the tour guide at a visitor center and was told it was a great site to see. After spending a few minutes in the visitors center I made the climb up to the fort. The path was steep and rocky and I even considered turning... More

Nice walk up to the top after you leave the little information centre. Great views and you can get some cool pictures of yourself hanging off the cliffs!

Visited February 2013, and no entrance fee at that time. We hopped on an island tour bus upon disembarking from the ferry, and this was a long stop to explore and eat. There weren't much in terms of facilities (one small gift shop and cafe with bathroom), and definitely not for those who have difficulty walking/climbing over things. It took... More

Nothing to dislike. Spectacular but not a place for small children. Got the bus tour out to site and after a good walk arrived at Dun Aonghasa. Guide book excellent.

A step back in history in a well presented environment. Not expensive. You need to be reasonably mobile to manage the path.

Very budget friendly (5 Euros), but very busy. Hike to the top to get amazing views! Worth a quick visit!

This was a must see if you are going to the Aran Islands. The cliffs were quite high and many people were getting close. Enjoying the cliffs from a foot away is just as nice as going to the edge. Wear your hiking shoes as some of the stones are slippery.

It's a nice Hike up and a pretty amazing view for around €5. I'd recommend taking a flask of tea and a light lunch to have once you reach the top
