Stunning fort! The highlight however is the stunning, charismatic Jibbles, a buxom sheep who is as friendly as a wee dog, who guards the front door. Jibbles likes to be hand fed grass, head scratches, and will lift a fire leg to paw at you if you aren’t paying enough attention. She is a sweet angel and potentially a faery sheep.

Just a ten minute detour off the ring of Kerry drive and well worth a quick stop. The fort was much bigger than I expected and well preserved. You can climb up the walls to get good views of the local area and admire the dry stone walls. Free car park about a ten minute walk away.

Wow, I was not expecting to come across such an amazing stone fort near Cahersiveen because I hadn't read anything about it before. Cross the long narrow bridge just past the heritage centre and turn left at the other side. About a mile further on, you will come to a small carpark and you can see the stone fort from there. It's in very good condition , a great thick stone wall with steps up to the top on the inside. They say that it was the residence of a rich landowner in the distant past. Great views all around - and it's free to visit!

Such an amazing feature and beautifully restored ancient stone fort. Huge in scale and so impressive to see up close.

Even more amazing is how quiet it always is. This is such a hidden treasure and have never seen many people here at all.

My children had a great time exploring and climbing this fort. I was petrified as the drop on the other side of the high wall was.....high!

Interesting outdoor ruins form a fort. I came out here in the evening after dinner while it was still daylight. There will be a small parking lot on the side of the road and you will see a dirt walking path - that might be the only markings you see. Great views of the countryside and you can walk all around and inside the ruins. Should be a 10-15min walk to get over there from the parking lot.

We visited this with our two kids, ages 8 and 12, and they loved it! We saw this fort and also the Leacanabuaile Fort which are within walking distance of each other. Both forts are very fascinating, but this one in particular had a cool entrance through the rock. We were free to climb and explore which is one of my favorite things to get to experience.

The fort looks rather uninspiring from the road. However, once inside the complex is truly remarkable. A series of internal steps gave visitors access up on to its broad stone walls. The view across the fields and to the coast is unobstructed from the top. The day we visited, we were lucky enough to experience the fort alone for almost half an hour.

This fort from 500 BC is well restored with steps to the top. Open 24/7, no facilities. Excellent views from the top. Like many of these forts it was built from the point of view that you could see your enemy coming from far away and prepare. Longish walk to the fort. There was a guy trying to sell a sheep in the car park.
