It's worth the few euros and stop. Just be prepared to walk straight uphill.

Worthwhile stop while traveling the coast route. Hard to imagine that centuries ago people were able to build such houses that have stood up over the years.

We've explored these ancient clachans twice in the past seven years, and we took some great photos this time, as the sun was out and we have blue sky to accentuate the ocean. Worth checking out!

The first stop was a few bucks and had some cool houses. Not all were still intact but still very cool. Awesome views, to boot! The second one we stopped at had border collies and lambs to pet! Super nice guy running things, too.

Enclosed farmsteads of the free farmers of the Early Christian Period. Ancient times to 1200 AD. And there are still farmers and sheep going on around them! The views are splendid.

Others complained about paying 3 euros for a couple of stone houses, but for us it was unique. One was intact, and you had to bend to get inside under its roof. The others were missing the top, but you could imagine the work that...More

Although many people have complained about paying 3 Euros to get in, I feel this stop was worth every penny. Beautiful views out over Dingle Bay of Skellig Michael AND the huts were incredible. We love the history and story behind them and highly recommend...More

Okay it's not too expensive, but there isn't much to see. I can't really say the staff was friendly, but the most puzzling part is the information you receive, which never states the same dates. It's all very confusing.

It was a windy day when we climbed the paved walkway up to the stone houses. Be prepared to bend over to get in. Only one had a roof. It was Stone. It was only three euros and barely worth it.
