Dunbeg Fort An Dún Beag

Dunbeg Fort, which was built during the Iron Age, is located directly at the edge of the cliffs.
To be protected against attacks, numerous earth walls as well as a massive stone wall were built towards the mainland. The supposedly strategically well chosen position on the edge of the cliff has turned out to have been fatal, as parts of Dunbeg have been lost to the sea in the past years, due to erosion of the rocky cliffs.
Within the fort, the foundation of a building can be found. The fort is part on the Fahan Group – a collection of prehistoric buildings located on the Dingle Peninsula.
