Great visit, all the volunteers were really helpful, lots of interesting facts and very knowledgeable about the Forts history. The views from the restaurant balcony are the best in Cork. Would really like to see the more of the fort open to the public...but that will take time and financial support. When we were leaving, a fellow visitor was donating... More

Wonderful location. Interesting history. The views are amazing. A little tick to find but well worth a visit. For bigger kids though.

We decided last minute to take a trip to Camden fort. Very interesting, factual, places for the kids to explore and lots of friendly volunteers to give extra information about the history of the fort and local area. We then visited the tea rooms. The girls that served us got a bit confused with the (simple) order but they were... More

Great day out with the kids and grandad. So much to see here, so many rooms to explore. They are working away restoring the buildings for exhibits etc and eventually they will get around to landscaping the grounds around the Fort. Walking along all the passage ways it was like being on a secret seven or famous five adventure. The... More

Open at the weekends until September. Well worth the visit. If you are not able for all the climbing there is a lovely cafe with stunning views of the harbour. The fort has mainly been renovated by volunteers. Well Worth the visit.

We were staying in Cork for the weekend. The manager of centra in crosshaven advised us to go to the Camden fort. So the next day we took a trip up. The scenery there is breathtaking! It looms right over the harbour and out to sea. The fort itself is very well done up, the little exhibitions have a lot... More

I loved the trip out to the Fort. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful. We spent a lot of time looking at all the displays as well as taking in the views. We finished off with a lovely coffee in the cafe. Superb day out!

Fort Camden Meagher is somewhere I have known from afar all my life and I am delighted that we all now have the opportunity to visit this wonderful place. The history of the fort is well told by volunteers who have a passionate approach to the place; they clearly love it and relish the chance to tell us about it.... More
