 Historical information about Castlegregory & The Maharees on the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland
Castlegregory is the capital of Lettragh, the northern side of the Dingle Peninsula.
The castle – "slighted" by the English army – and the estate at Castlegregory were settled first on a Cromwellian soldier, then passed to a Derry man who settled locally, and were bought by the first Lord Ventry in whose family they remained until 1913.
According to some accounts, it was by this route that the Cromwellian forces crossed the mountains from Castlegregory to Minard Castle, though others favour the route by Maghanaboe; but for the walker who likes to get up into the hills it is simply an excellent route to take across the mountains.
