“Worth the visit”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We enjoyed walking the 6 kilometre circuit from Kinsaleto James Fort and around the Fort ruins and surrounds. The ruins were more extensive than we had expected and well maintained with the grass newly mowed. There is no entry fee and the area is very quiet and provides good views over the bay to the headlands and to Charles Fort.

Interesting ruins of the fort. I hope that it will be taken care of for future generations to learn from.

“History Preserved”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We enjoyed our visit here - no crowds at all. We walked around on our own looking around at the sites and the artifacts on display. A cool part of Irish history.
