This fort is located just a couple kilometers from the heart of Kinsale. You walk across a beach to get to the hillside it is on and from then on you can explore to your heart's content. There are plenty of buildings (ruins) to scramble around and tunnels to find. It's not easy to find unless you know it's there, we knew it was there and still had trouble, but just ask for directions. Because of this, there are hardly any people there so it feels like you have the place to yourself. They are in the process of renovating it so eventually they may charge an entrance fee, but for now it is completely free.
