A cruise by Dún Aonghasa is a cruise by – and a chance to marvel at – one of Western Europe’s most magnificent and best-preserved prehistoric stone fortresses.

Perched atop a towering, 300ft cliff on the southern shores of beautiful Inismór island, which in itself is a sight to behold during your scenic cruise along Ireland’s rugged west coast, Dún Aonghasa boasts impressive terrace walls that surround the inner enclosure, where it’s believed people first lived in around 1500BC.

From on board your Fred. Olsen ship, you’ll see the site in all its historic glory, as it stands firm against the Atlantic winds, and enjoy views of Inismór’s wild, typically-Irish scenery too, for a memorable cruise experience.
