Dunbeg Fort is a true find, providing the opportunity to explore a millennia old fort while also providing some of the most impressive views on the Peninsula Drive. Every time I'm around Dingle I make sure to head out here and spend some time taking in the views of all the cliffs surrounding the fort. Truly a majestic sight. The... More

It was fascinating to be on this site which has been fortified in some way for over 2000 years. The fort sustained major damage in a storm in 2014 and part of it washed into the sea. From the looks of things, I wouldn't be surprised if more of it is reclaimed by the ocean in the future. If you... More

I think it's funny that people won't pay €3 a rice to experience this. The fort is really cool, the fact that it's eroding makes this more precious. The video is very helpful and makes this a bit more easy to take in, just do the audio visual first to give you appreciation for the fort itself.

This place is an absolute ripoff. It is located in a position that is prime to get your money, and I regret that we fell for it. You see, it takes a while to drive out onto the Dingle Peninsula. When we finally got to Dingle and headed out on Slea Head Drive, one of the first things we came... More

Standing in this place, much of which has already washed into the sea, with the rain beating into your face as it was when we visited, looking at the waves breaking against the nearby cliffs, it doesn't take much imagination to think about just how tough life once was and how the difference between living and dying was your willingness...

Nice to see something that can last for a long time. Great Waterview. Cost some money, but for a good cause. Can be a great mini walk.

The fort itself is ok. The views from the fort are lovely. It was nice to see once, I won't see it again. If you can't fit it in, don't be upset.

We visited towards the end of April and the Visitor Center was open so we took advantage of watching the video which gives a good historical overview of the fort and it's place on the rugged coast line. Part of the site itself was taped off for visitor safety as some of the fort has slid down the cliff during... More
