    Ancient Gem
    Be ready to walk a very steep grade to see these ancient beehive huts. Area is surrounded by sheep fields. It's very nice in the spring due to all the lambs. You also get a great view of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Interesting spot
    We stopped to view the ruins here. You park in a small lot across the road, walk to the entrance and pay the a few euros per person to enter, walk up a hill( about 2-4 minutes) and then you are there. It is not large and spending 20-30 minutes is about right. Very interesting. The views are also nice from the hill

    Sheep Shearing and Ancient Fort!
    This was our first stop on the Slea Head Loop. The ancient forts are so interesting and there is also a nice sea view. Across the street there is even more to see. We watched sheep being sheared and the dogs were fascinating. Such smart animals! I'm not sure if there is a schedule, but we just happened to walk up at the right time for the shearing. Please note that you pay a few Euros at each stop, kind of a pain.

    Fantastic place to see a real beehive hut
    If you can’t get to Skellig Michael to see the beehive huts on the Island then this is a good cheaper alternative. For a small fee the farmer will let you walk up the hill to explore them on his land. They’re fascinating and the views over the Atlantic are wild, for us the weather was horizontally- and until you get to the huts which is a short 5 minute at tops walk up the hill there is no protection from Mother Nature!! There is one complete hut and several semi complete with bits of wall and paths in all ways. We loved it regardless off getting saturated and were so glad we went.

Wow! Prepare to have your mind blown. Crazy to think about people living back then and what they were doing besides building this. An absolute must see!

Interesting enough to see; recommend seeing at least one beehive hut area while in Ireland. Just be aware that it costs a few Euro/person (I must have missed that when planning our trip).

This was part of the Slea Head Tour we took and a stop that is worth it. The history and how it all still is standing is very cool.

We took an organized mini-bus tour around the Dingle Peninsula which included a stop at the Fahan BeeHive Huts. I suggest you take an organized tour vs, driving yourself in order to avoid any parking challenges and yo will be able to visit far more sites. The BeeHive huts are interesting and worth a visit.

The Dingle Peninsula is beautiful. Gorgeous scenery and amazing history. You can walk up close to these stone huts, just wear sturdy shoes!

For modern-day travellers, it is challenging to understand the level of motivation and dedication that led to building and living in these stone huts. But the lure must have been phenomenal as these are just a few of dozens of sites throughout Ireland. To really experience the visit, think about when you have undertaken something very rigorous and how you grew with meeting the challenge.
