Visited Crosshaven Red convention and what a fantastic view on a lovely dry day in Fort Camden. This a fantastic amenity and well worth a second visit. The volunteers were excellent and extremely knowledgeable about the fort and its history. There were re inactments today. The food was lovely but supplies ran low very early which was a pity.

Fort Camden is one of those places off the beaten track. It overlooks the Beautiful town of Crosshaven and the view from the fort is spectacular. The fort was taken over by volunteers only a few years ago and they have done a wonderful job, they still have a way to go but just walking around gives you an idea... More

Only go if you like a walk,as there is so much to see.You will be amazed how much has been put into one place,it will only get better because the fort has still lot's to be uncovered.The volunteers have made a splended job of restoring diferent parts along with a nice cafe for a mid walk cupper.

I recently visited Fort Camden Cork and was delighted with the work the volunteers were doing in trying to restore the fort. The views alone from the fort make the visit worthwhile especially from the cafe deck area. Walking around the underground tunnels is a great experience and the exhibitions are great. Well worth the admission price and a great... More

The views of Cork harbour are amazing. It is great to be able to sit outside and take in the beautiful scenery while enjoying a delicious... More

I have been to Camden a number of times. It's a very well organised with informative signs about the history of the fort and it is great value for money. A guided tour or audio tour like Cork City Gaol would be great.I certainly will visit again in the near future. A must see.
