Our B&B host told us about this along the Slea Head drive. It is on private property, but don’t be deterred. The owner is friendly, pay the fee and follow the trail right to it. We were the only ones there and you can walk...More

Rahinnane Castle sits on farmland just above Ventry on the Dingle Peninsula but, unlike the very similar looking Minard Castle (where access is denied) you can walk right up to it and enjoy its splendour. The farming landowners could not be more welcoming. It costs...More

This spectacular ruin hovers over the beach in an emerald sea of grass. Rarely are there other visitors around and the winds shuffling through the castle make you feel like a traveller back in time. The beach is beautiful to walk on as well.

We were there for around 30 minutes (I was taking pictures) but you are free to spend however long you wish. The owners are very welcoming.
