Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very quick look at a castle. You can't get close to it, but it's beautiful to look at, and we got some great pictures.

Lovely spot for a dip that we found by chance, on our way to Inch beach. I chose to dip here instead. No jelly fish on this particular day and little to no seaweed either. Really enjoyable.

Minard Castle is a bit out of the way and yes, you have to drive down a very narrow road (that would be quite challenging with lots of traffic)...but this place is great, and having something all to yourself is magical! I only met a couple cars on the drive down and back to the main road. It's a very cool place though, my only regret is the time of day I was there...it was around 2pm and the lighting was very harsh to get good photos. I bet it would be great in the morning (including sunrise) and maybe late afternoon/sunset. Worth a visit if you're trying to get off the beaten path!

Getting to this castle ruin is a little more challenging as you must travel down a very narrow road with little space for passing. The location of this castle is perfect. On a hill overlooking the water and the beach. It is worth the visit just to see the beauty of the location. It is not advised to walk near the still standing remains since the stability of the still standing walls may be in question. Not a must visit but worth it.

Gary suggested we go see this very awesome castle and landmark. Located a short drive of about 15 minutes from downtown Dingle. Narrow roads lead to the castle once off the main "highway". Drive slow. Once at the site there is a paved parking area for 10/12 autos. Should avoid trying to take this site in on a weekend.

Fairly easy to find right off the main road. There is parking along the road and there is rarely anyone else there. We did run into a German film crew who didn't want us there one time, but we ignored them.
Watch your step on the rocks, as you can see they are prolific, slippery and wet.
Circle all the way around to get nice pictures from all angles.
I believe there is a holy well nearby as well.

I was there with a group of friends, we rented the whole place. Fantastic rooms, beautiful staircase and wonder area to walk around.

We went on our own, with our rental car. The site is very photogenic, but there is no entry into the ruins (safety concerns) and it was just a nice stop on the way to Dingle.

This is a castle you can only view from afar. It is in ruins and you cannot climb on it, however, the views of the Atlantic are breathtaking.
