This fort is in the early stages of redevelopment - but what a wonderful job they are doing. The guides/volunteers are incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the site.
There's lots to see there and they had a very entertaining re-enactment which they invited a few viewers to join! There was a lot of guns banging and people falling over 'dead'.
The coffee shop is wonderful. The indoor room is so atmospheric - like walking into a 1940s movie. And the outdoor area - all I can say is -get there at opening time and get the best seat at the right hand end of the deck. You can sit there and watch the ships come in to Cork harbour and the yachts going out. Truly spectacular.
Go there now - this place can only become a huge success.
