I'm in visiting my boyfriend and friends and we decided to take a small day trip to Clare, and this was our first stop of the day. I was actually very excited to visit a stone fort, and was really looking forward to stopping here because I knew excavations were ongoing.
Upon our arrival we walked through a lovely gift shop and paid a massive (Yes, I don't mean that sarcastically) 6 euro to enter the fort. The fort itself was very small and the markers (stones with numbers painted on them) on the ground were marking basically a couple rocks on the ground. Which was interesting in its own right because of how old it was, but there was no information other than the two or three sentences in the booklet.
Overall I was really disappointed that there was just nothing to see, and it's really not a good value for your money at all. We spent maybe 30 minutes total here (including the 20 minute video) and didn't really do anything. We looked at ancient rocks on the ground.
The cafe looked lovely, and the prices didn't look horrible, but we didn't stay for food, so I can't vouch for that.
I wont come back fro a second visit, and I probably wont tell anybody to visit, either.
