If you have any interest in history you have to visit this site, when you are in the area. Excellently restored and maintained.

Great little place to visit, follow the signs from Cahersiveen to the old forts and eventually continue down the road until you find the car park on the side of the road. From here you can access two forts and both aren't too far. There...More
