  • Wonderful experience and the caretaker Andy was so helpful. Steep climb to the top but the ring fort , stone circle and other archaeological sites were so worth the visit.

  • Fantastic place to visit on a sunny and dry day. It is quite a bit of a walk up from the parking spot to the actual heritage park. But all made nicley with a gravel track. The ring fort is still very well visible in the landscape and it has a very interesting feeling stepping back in time thousands of years to be in this area. Entry is 5 EUR for adults and there is an honesty box placed. So make sure you bring some cash in the correct amount.
  • Very steep site and not suitable for manual wheelchairs. The sites themselves are off the main track so you would need some mobility to access these. Worth a visit if you're feeling fit!
