We did not do the official visitor centre or tour, but just used the interpretive signs to climb to the top and admire the view (magnificent on a sunny day) and history.

Very good museum space showing the history of Ireland, the views from the top of the fort are excellent, and the cafe is great for a meal afterwards.
