We were visiting with a family who lives locally & they took us here. A great stop that I otherwise would have probably missed! Nice grounds; beautiful views; history! The teens had a great time as well.

This is a beautiful old fort in Kinsale bay. We hada lovely guided walking tour given by a very knowledgeable young lady. It was sad because it was burned so others couldn't use it. A visit here is well worth it if you are in the area.

being here a number of times and each time i really enjoy it, you get around the whole fort in less then an hour, but what makes it even more special is the view and the nice walk around the Fort.

if the weather was nice you could lay, outside the fort as well and still take in the great view of Kinsale below.

We made a last minute stop on our way out of Kinsale and am glad that we did. The views from the fort were great and seeing what remains of a long gone community of soldiers and their families was very interesting.

This is a pleasant, interesting walk from Kinsale town on Lower Walk up to Bulman Pub and then a STEEP hill to Charles Fort.
This is a "star fort" with parts from 17C to its closure in 1922.
There is a small but informative museum and then complimentary guided tour for 1 hour or so. Great views, great history!
