The views and history envelop you. This is one of the best preserved unused forts in Europe. It has views of Camden Fort Meaghar to the south west and Fort Carlisle to the south east. Looking north you can see the historical town of Cobh (or Queenstown) from where the last passengers boarded the ill fated Titanic before it left... More

Brilliant night laughing and being entertained by Geordie comedian Ross Noble. Loved the comic intro which advises you to turn off mobile phones etc. First two rows were empty due to a faux pas by COH so Ross urged by tannoy for people to fill those rows which they duly obliged and he returned the thanks by using one or...

Great show, but had to change seats as too much reverberation from drums coming through - management extremely helpful when informed of this and were happy to re-locate us.
