Wonderful collection of pre-historic and historic sites in the park. First time seeing a ringfort and the stone circle was great. Looked for a few other stone circles throughout Beara but were difficult to find. A number of other burial sites and a famine house...More

We came here with a member of the local parish and the Heritage Park. What a treat to have such a knowledgeable guide. This park is certainly worth taking your time to search out. So much history.

Would thoroughly recommend a visit to this site, the surroundings are fantastic, an it is a wonderfully maintained site. My husband is unable to walk very far, but we were allowed to take the car up the steep climb, which was brilliant!
