Dunbeg Promontory Fort Nov 10, 2017
A few kms from Dingle on the Slea Head drive, on a wide promontory sits the prehistoric Dunbeg fort. An impressive ringfort it dates from around 500BC. Quite well preserved it has incredibly thick walls (up to 5 metres) but was mainly used as an observatory over Dingle Bay.

Cost for entrance was 3€

This is also the area for "Clochàns" or beehive huts, mainly in the nearby village of Fahan. These lie on private land and there is a charge of 2€
