Breathtaking Walk into the Past
Jun 2021 • Solo
Interesting educational site dating from Bronze Age. 950BC. Round stone Fort the evidence of our ancestors ability to build long lasting structurrs helps keep the connection to their era alive
Carpark adjacent to roadside
Great for solo walkers or family groups (children over 4 yearsof age due to narrow steep pathways)
Walkers have a treat in store with delightful wild flowers and the odd little Rabbit or Lizard appearing in in the surrounding of the pathways. The birdsong I'd enchanting and the smell of fresh grass and flora is

Sep 2018 • Couples
No charge to walk in. Is set in beautiful woods.

A huge prehistoric hill for with very good signs explaining all the different areas. An intact lower area. The woods give the opportunity for long walks

Very informative placards that explain the structure and complex and how people lived.

Difficult place to find on Google maps but lovely when you get there! Free entry and basically a forest park open all the time with signs of the old hill fort walls and information regarding this-an enjoyable hour spent walking and reading!

I regularly walk these woods, wonderful and peaceful, good gravelled tracks, but short hill sections.

I used take the kids when they were small. Its reasonably near me, it's safe, it's free and it is soooooooooo beautiful. If like me, you love to be surrounded by nature, trees and the sound of birdsong-this is the place for you. I've recently rediscovered it and these days, i don't follow the paths but wander through the trees. I've seen parts i've never seen before. It is a magical place, fabulous all year around and a great place to get fresh air and exercise. Park your car in the nice little car park at the entrance and off you go. Enjoy

You can easily get lost in this beautiful forest at the back of the Dromoland estate. Nice combination of nature and history. Recommended!

Amazing site!

We found this place by accident on our way to our hotel in Shannon. It´s totally unknown but brimful of history going back thousands of years. The homes are signposted and details given. It´s the site of the greatest gold find in Europe and well worth a visit for those with a passing interest in history.

What a find!!!
Jul 2011
Stayed in Shannon and came across this fort by chance. AMAZING. It is ancient and full of treks where the kids could get lost in time. It was free to enter and there were no other visitors the day we visited. Well worth the time if you like history.
