Enclosed farmsteads of the free farmers of the Early Christian Period. Ancient times to 1200 AD. And there are still farmers and sheep going on around them! The views are splendid.

Others complained about paying 3 euros for a couple of stone houses, but for us it was unique. One was intact, and you had to bend to get inside under its roof. The others were missing the top, but you could imagine the work that...More

Although many people have complained about paying 3 Euros to get in, I feel this stop was worth every penny. Beautiful views out over Dingle Bay of Skellig Michael AND the huts were incredible. We love the history and story behind them and highly recommend...More

Okay it's not too expensive, but there isn't much to see. I can't really say the staff was friendly, but the most puzzling part is the information you receive, which never states the same dates. It's all very confusing.

It was a windy day when we climbed the paved walkway up to the stone houses. Be prepared to bend over to get in. Only one had a roof. It was Stone. It was only three euros and barely worth it.

A delightful little stop along the road. Only 3 euros and well worth it! Hold a baby lamb and walk into a beehive hut.

Property was dirty when you first walk up. I was a bit hesitant because of this. Then I was greeted by two lovely Border Collies that followed me everywhere and wanted to sit on my lap. They seemed a bit skinny. The hole thing just...More

And a chance to walk around and into a stacked stone hut. Huts of this sort, but more conical in form, were built on Skellig Michael and used in a Star Wars movie. Similar huts exist in other countries, including France.

If you are doing the drive around the Dingle peninsula, it is definitely worth stopping to take a look around. There is convenient parking, then a short hike up the hill to see the Beehive Huts. It is remarkable to think that people were living...More

To have the opportunity to visit where and how people lives form ancient times to 1200 ad is not always possible. It is amazing to see this site.

The Beehive Huts are about 750 metres West of Dun Beag Fort on the Slea Head Drive, West of Dingle. The parking is on the Atlantic Ocean side and you need to cross the road to get to the Huts. It's a couple of Euros to get... More
