“Memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

My parents were living in the fort when they were first transferred to Crosshaven and I have many fun memories of Civil Defence/Red Cross weekends spent there in my youth. The Fort wasn't open for the season yet but easy to see all the amazing work done by all the volunteers.

“Worth a visit”

If your in Crosshaven Fort Camden is worth a visit especially on a sunny day if there's entertainment in the square. The views are fantastic bring your camera and good walking shoes. Great day out guaranteed.

“If you like Irish history you'll love this”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Try to visit on a fair weather day as this is mostly an outdoor gig. We brought our kids and they enjoyed it very much. Fab to see the old gun turrets and ammo magazine. You will need about 2hrs for the quick tour

“Partially Restored Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Being restored by a team of enthusiasts who are really knowledgeable. Stunning location at the mouth of the harbour and you can see how it fits into the whole defensive plan for the harbour. Went there for a military exhibition and look froward to going back to see progress of restoration

“Brilliant, if your anywhere in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Fort Camden is a must see attraction!
You must be in for a bit of a walk though, as Fort Camden is all that!
Fort Camden has an exceptional restaurant with an open outdoor seating area with a view of the sea and the passing boats.
This attraction is at low cost (€3) and is very clean and suitable for children.
