For almost 400 years the fort played a key role as a strong strategic position for the defence of Ireland, the west coast of England and Wales.

Internationally recognised as being one of the finest examples of a classic coastal artillery fort in the world. Interactive exhibitions and extensively restored areas of the fort offer an extraordinary glimpse of the fort’s strong British and Irish military history.

For a family day out, the fort offers exhibitions, re-enactments and panoramic views of Cork Harbour. Please check website for upcoming events.
