Gorgeous experience, the volunteers are great and are so enthusiastic they have every reason to be. The work they are doing restoring the historic Fort. Stopped to have a snack in the wonderful restaurant, it must have one of the most stunning views in the world. Really hard to beat. Really enjoyed our visit we will be back.

I recommend this place for anyone to visit. It's a lot of walking, but the views are STUNNING and the history is amazing. The tour guides are available to give any information you want. There was even a 911 NYC exhibit, which was incredible. The tea and biscuits were wonderful as well. It is a must see!

Not sure what to expect on this visit but very pleasantly surprised. The volunteers doing the tour guide are fabulous, so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and so much history to relate. Lots of steps but they even managed to make those enjoyable. Well worth a visit and if there is an enactment going on be sure to take that in also.... More

This Fort is constantly being developed & extended thanks to the wonderful work of the volunteers. We spend a facinating afternoon wondering around, taking it all in. There are volunteers strategically placed who are full of information regarding the history and the renovations. A really entertaining way to pass an afternoon.

You will have no choice but to learn everything about this place: the guys who run it make sure you take it all in, and are packed with knowledge and take great pride in their work. A shining example of historical conservation in progress. I found it more interesting than the more popular Charles Fort in Kinsale. Free plentiful car... More

Great attraction. Great day out and what a view of Spike island, Cobh, Fort Davis, Roches Point, the entrance to Cork harbour and the Tall Ship saling below. All this while sitting on the coffee deck. Where would you get it boy!! Bay of Naples wouldn't hold a candle to it. This is being supervised by volunteers and deserves support.... More

Last Saturday was our second trip there, the first being a few months back, and it was just as fascinating this time around. The staff as amazing, friendly and obviously passionate about the place, considering that the most are volunteers. There's so much to see and even for those of us that may not be so into modern military history,... More
