Near Camp village in the centre of a field is a gravestone which bears a simple cross, an Ogham inscription and a Latin script. Tradition tells how Fas, wife of a Milesian chieftain, was killed in the first battle between the Milesians and the original settlers.

At 2050 feet above sea-level a stone fortress with a defending wall 350 feet long and 14 feet thick. Tradition tells how the fort was built and magically defended by Cu Raoi a magical figure who carried off Cu Chulainn's girlfriend Blathnaid.

A stretch of safe and sandy beach which can be enjoyed by both swimmers and walkers alike.

A small rectangular site consisting of an oratory an two small buildings perhaps dated to the seventh century. Just past the church the ruins of a ruined village can be seen. During the nineteenth century the landlords evicted all the residents leaving a deserted village.

In 1891 the 3 foot gauge Tralee and Dingle Railway opened and proved to be extremely slow and accident-prone due to high gradients and curves.

Fine restaurants, pubs, petrol station are all in the village and if you can't keep away from 'surfing' an internet cafe is located in Camp Village.
