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 could be more done on highlighting the history with some more signs but then again they just might not know.
Great place to climb around and take some fun shots and see some great scenery.

We were lucky that the access was open so we could easily enter and walk around these castle ruins. There is a little place where you can park, a dodgy looking man was there offering us to hold a lamb, we declines as we knew he would ask for money later.

Kells Bay House & Gardens is Ireland's premier sub-tropical botanical Gardens situated overlooking Dingle Bay on the Ring of Kerry. It is home of the SkyWalk, Ireland's longest rope bridge (112 foot long). Ideal for everyone with over 3 kms of walks and lots of Dinosaurs for the children. We also have 4 star accommodation in the former Hunting Lodge, with our Cafe and our Thai restaurant, Sala Thai, open daily throughout the year (by prior appointment only in January).
Visited last week and was very impressed by the additions since last year to this excellent must see attraction. As a wheelchair user; accessible toilet facilities are available beside the restaurant. Billy tells me the new wheelchair accessible apartment will be ready for use in the New Year.

A short drive past the castle are a pair of stone forts, this one and Cahergall Fort both of which are well preserved examples of stone forts. If you are not heading to Dingle where there are some other examples, make sure you seek these out.

This is the only Catholic church in Ireland not named after a saint. The full name is 'Daniel O'Connell Memorial Church of the Holy Cross' and Irish people in America, Australia, England and Scotland were ask to fund its construction.. Priests were sent to America and Australia and by 1888 they raised nearly £10,000. Although a solid imposing edifice, it is rather stark and depressing inside apart from some excellent stained glass windows. Was beauty perhaps deliberately shunned to reflect the plight of the Irish during the potato famine? I cannot think of any other explanation!

I did enjoy the Barracks. I thought the renovation of the fire trashed building was well done. I learned a great deal of Irish history and the views from the top window were stunning. Only thing was that it was a justifiable homage to Daniel O Donell so could be a little disappointing if you expected a wider history. There was a room with local history also but it was not as prominent.

Lovely hike at the back of Cahersiveen. Stunning views overlooking the Irish countryside. Long easy walk into the valley then a steep climb to the top of the hills. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Going down was to be fair a lot harder and I did slip here and there but its all part of the experience!! Took around 41/2 hours to do but I did have a 1/2 lunch break! Well worth it!!

I was born in Cahirciveen ,and I still love going back every year.Here we have the birth place of Daniel O Connell.Our local Church is called after him.He was the man who gave a better life to Roman Catholics and introduced Catholic Emancipation in the house of Parlament.This site is well worth a visit,It is a pity that sites like these haven't been restored to their original Glory.

Overview: Cnoc na dTobar (Hill of the Wells) has been a sacred pilgrim site
since early Christian times and the ancient Lúghnasa festivals to the old Celtic
God of the Harvest were also celebrated on this mountain. The trail starts
near the Coonanna Harbour: it is thought that the early pilgrims came
by boat. The pilgrim path is quite clear and is marked by 14 Stations of the
Cross, which were put up in the 1880’s, leading to an imposing Celtic Cross on
the summit plateau. Skellig Michael comes into view by the 7th station. From
the summit, a majestic 360° vista radiates over the Atlantic Ocean, Skellig
islands, Valentia Island, West Cork, Carrauntoohill, the Blasket Islands, the
Dingle Peninsula and back up to the McGillycuddy Reeks.
Grade: Moderate, starting
gently and becoming more strenuous near the summit. Be equipped
with sturdy walking boots/shoes, warm clothing, raingear, packed
lunch and, perhaps, walking poles which are useful for descending.
Distance: 9 km (return) to the summit, 5 kilometres (return) to the 7th station.
Time: 3.0 hours (return) to the summit.

Encounters this nugget on our travels through the winding roads of Kerry. The gradual walk dotted with fairy doors and local history was certainly a much needed stop on our way. The 360° views on the summit were most definitely worth the mere price paid for my wife and I. Will definitely return.
