Owner description: The Tour – Reopening for guided tours mid-May 2017 Duncannon Fort is an impressive presentation of a bastioned fortress perched on the side of the stunning Hook Peninsula, County Wexford, part of Ireland’s Ancient East. This historic structure has gathered countless intriguing and awe inspiring stories over its 450 year history and holds one of the best vantage points to take in the beautiful Waterford Estuary from. Duncannon Fort closed for the season on Sunday 28th August 2016. Thank you for all the support this season. *Hook Tourism is a not for profit organisation. All funds raised contribute to providing these guided tours and to the development of tourism on the Hook Peninsula.

visited recently was a bit disappointed with the maritime section, the displays need to be better looked after, there was mold on some and others were in a bad state, it wouldn't take much to clean up the place. it was interesting to walk around but would have preferred more history on the place itself and less on the nazi's in ww2, they had no connection with the fort. worth a visit but clean the place up. the guides were nice

This Fort is well worth a visit and the tourguide was really good. The place is steeped in history and their newly opened WW1 room is quite authentic. The tea-shop was welcome after the tour and there are a number of shops selling items, such as wood carvings and ladies clothes-all within the grounds. Enjoy your visit!

They recently opened up a new WW1 trench experience and a museum which has really improved the experience. Always worth visiting
