We drove around for awhile to find this location. The history is interesting and a kind of morbid, but my husband HAD to find it. Watch out for cow walking home for the night.

This is near a golf course in Ballyferriter. Before Ballyferriter follow the signs for the golf course and you will see the fort on a promontory. It is also the location of a set for the upcoming Star Wars film (sequel to Force Awakens and presumably Luke Skywalker's home after the film was kicked off Skellig Michael).

We visited Dun An Oir on a very windy day. It is a very interesting old church. The sun dial and cemetery are especially interesting. There is not a great deal left to the building, but what is there is very interesting. The views n the way there are wonderful of the coastline.

Lovely quit spot. You have to use your imagination not a great deal to see as mentioned in other reviews. But great history and interesting story.

If you like off the beaten path sites, Dun An Oir should find two-three hours in your itinerary. I have been alone on most of the walk beside some other walker I met and gladly pointed me to the right direction as it probably is not the easiest fort to find. The walk itself is rewarding like many other I have taken in Ireland.
