Spectacular place

The Black Fort was stunning. We were all amazed even though we had already been to Dun Aonghasa. We then went to the Wormhole, but our memories were not tarnished.

Everything we did in Inis Mor was wonderful and the island is so quaint. Loved our pony and cart tour and then the next day took a cab to the other end of the island. Just as good.

After touring the wormhole and dun anghous we set out to see the "black fort" on the east side of the island. Trail was partially marked so keep your eyes out for the signs. The second half of the trek takes you across a rock field ( be careful because it's hard to tell where the cliff edge is )... More

Certainly the equal of Dun Aonghasa though more work to get there. The advantage of the difficulty is that it's less crowded.

This series of cliffs and the ring fort are IMHO the best view in Ireland. Yes, better than Dun Aonghasa and Cliffs of Moher. It takes about an hour of hiking to reach the fort and the hike is not for beginners, although hiking boots are NOT required. It is very worth the walk!!!

Like the much more famous and visited Dun Aenghus, this is an Iron Age stone fort set on a spectacular perch on the south rim of Inishmore. The walk to it is a butt kicker. There is no actual trail. One must traverse an otherworldly limestone landscape complete with stone fences. If a hiker doesn't turn an ankle just getting... More

My wife and I had been to the Aran Islands before and had visited Dun Aengus, which is incredible. But on our second visit, we paid a visit to Dun Duchathair and I'm telling you, go here also. Dun Aengus, while amazing, is very busy/promoted, etc. This place is sort of hidden, but it has amazing views. Inside of the... More

Nice location to visit away from the overrun Dun Aenghus. Fabulous views of the cliffs and an ancient settlement. A nice well signposted walk from Kilronan.

This was fantastic; a bit of a hike to get to but most definitely worth it. We had the fort to ourselves and the views were spectacular!!!

We toured both of the large ring forts on the island and this was our favorite. It is a hike over the rough ground to get there so it makes it less accessible than the others. It is also not controlled by the historical group so there is no facilities. Stunning views along the coast and over the cliffs. Like... More
