This fort is a special place and my kids particularly loved it because of its secret passages and its underground areas. It is incredible how the community in this area have worked so hard to bring it back to life. Excellent!!

A top class heritage site, despite the fact that it is a work-in-progress project. Excellent guidance and knowledge given by team of voluntary guides. Site provides the best 'aerial' views if Cork Harbour.

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.

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
