Situated on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland, the Dunbeg Fort (also known as Dunbeg Promontory Fort) still stands as an example of a defensive fort.

The fort has four outer defensive banks and a sou terrain about 52 feet long, leading from the front of the outer defenses to the castle's interior.
