One of the gems of the Mizen Peninsula is Three Castle Head where there are Three Castles which are actually three Tower Houses with curtain walling.
Built in the 15th Century on the site of a Bronze Age Promontory Fort, the Castles stand sentinel beside a cliff top lake. Access is restricted at the moment because of the unstable state of the castles, but it is worth asking if it is possible to visit.
Have a look at www.mizenhead.net for further information.
