Portmagee Castle Gate House in Reencaheragh

Last week I went for a evening walk with Elizabeth who kindly showed me the way to this interesting unspoild part of Portmagee. I had the Gate House seen from the boat on the way to Skellig Michael but somehow was never there. It is located near the coast and must have been a good point to watch the harbour entrance in its days. Most of it is badly damaged or gone but the Gate House building is still impressive. On one of the islands nearby is a burial ground visible from the mainland. bring a tripod with you for evening photos as the days are getting shorter now.
