After driving along narrow back roads we came upon Minard Castle perched over-looking the tumbling surf of the Atlantic Ocean. The nearby boulder beach and the small steam all add to the history and pleasure of the place.
We took a few minutes off our route to visit this castle ruins that is situated on the shore of the sea. A beautiful location. No cost and parking is available. We brought a couple pints and enjoyed a memorable few moments on the unique...More

The ruins of the castle are worth a few scenic photos, both from the shoreline and from the fence barring entry. If you read about Minard castle in a travel guide and like me, wanted to get an up close look, you'll be disappointed. I...More

The drive to Minard castle is an adventure by itself (one lane sideroads). Lonely ruined little castle on a small gravel beach. The castle is on private grounds however. Nevertheless a nice stop on the southern part of your Dingle peninsula loop.
