Even if you’re not particularly interested in history (whether that be military or otherwise) this place is definitely worth a visit. You take the tour of the small... More

liked the laid back atmosphere and it was reasonably organised and has a well documented history sensibly set out .

Would highly recommend a visit to anyone but especially those with military or navy links

I went here with someone who is very interested in History etc. I wouldn't be that interested in history but I absolutely enjoyed our visit to Fort Dunree, the walks and the scenery was stunning!

Dunree Bay is a place to see with Dunree Museum nearby and ruins of an old fort you may find an explosive on the way...only joking but there was one found in the past. A must see place

The views from, and walks around, Fort Dunree in Inishowen are spectacular. It's worth stopping off here if you are driving the magnificent Inishowen 100 route around the peninsula.
