This is a fantastic result - best tea shop in Cork - the whole experience is a fantastic credit to the local volunteers who have revived this magnificent historical building. Great day out for young and old alike.

Living history , fantastic work being done by volunteers, entry is €5 which includes a map booklet, at certain days there are battle re enactments there, also quite a nice cafe tea room with the best decking view in Ireland looking out over Cork harbour

Huge amount of history to be learned in this place, lots of walking with some hills so have suitable shoes. A lot of this is outdoors so again dress appropriately, well worth a visit, some amazing views of the harbour. Great value for teh entrance fee you pay. Huge potential for this site to be developed in the future, can't... More

Well worth a trip, currently under renovation but that didn’t stop it from being an extraordinary place, beautiful scenery, lovely coffee shop, re-enactments every few hours. Can’t wait to go back and see more of the place , well worth the €5.00 entrance fee

We visited Fort Camden after hearing about the work done by voluntary groups in renovating the fort. There is free car parking and the entrance fee is only €5 per adult. You are given a brochure which includes a map to guide you around. There are some interesting exhibitions in the billeting areas and the underground tunnels and magazines are... More

Came here on a sunny day when there was reenactments going on and had a fantastic time. It felt as if I was being transported to another era. I would definitely visit again

Heard about the fort from someone who rang into a local radio station. Truly a hidden gem as I had never heard about it before. Very reasonable entrance fee of €5 per adult and €4 per child. (Under 4's are free) As the fort is run by volunteers, it is only open on Saturdays and Sunday's from the 30th May... More

Wow. Went to Fort Camden to see where my grand-uncle was based. Saw that and so much more. If for no other reason, go there to enjoy the spectacular views of the entrance to Cork Harbour while siting enjoying a coffee on the terrace. Must be one of Corks best kept secrets. That aside, the fort itself is fascinating. Some... More
