“Very interesting”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Visited Dunree fort and Muesum . There is plenty to see if you like military collections . There is collections from around the European military from Nazi badges to uniforms , guns , missiles , interesting information and a letter from THE Spike Milligan .!
There is walks with amazing views that are not part of the paid Museam . You can visit there and not spend a penny if you bring a picnic there is beautiful scenery to admire .
There is a small coffee house on site and toilet facilities .
The Museam has a 10 minute film that explains the Fort sight and history including Wolf Tone connections , Neopolian and British connections through out an indepenant Irish Republic .
Well worth a visit .
