Once you enter Crosshaven you ll see the beautiful harbour. Have breakfast or lunch or coffe and cake at Riverview Cafe. Walk up to Fort Camden using the scenic route or alternatively drive up Camden road To fort Camden. . Th views are amazing. On Sunday's during the summer a live battle display is laid on. The children love this.

The volunteers have done a great restoration job. There are lots of interesting items to view and, as a bonus, you get great views of Cork harbour. Well worth a visit.

The Fort was closed but we took a closer look from the top of the hill. The Fort is big and was renovated. It is good for all ages and especially for those who like history. So far I know the entrance is free of charge.

an old harbour fort reclaimed from near ruin by a group of local volunteers. What they have done has only touched the surface of what has yet to be seen at this unique military installation. Words are not enough, go visit it !!!!

We decided to call here one Sunday because it was recommended to us by a friend. For one , the scenery is fantastic. There are lots of small rooms with different pieces of history. You can take your time going from one to the other. There is lots of volunteers on hand that really know their stuff about the history... More

A little bit of Cork's history, brought to life by a fantastic group of volunteer guides in a superb setting. An indoor - outdoor feel-good museum that has something for everyone. Whether you are solo, a family with children, or a group, you will feel very welcome and not crowded or pressured. And the jewel in the crown, for me,... More

Visited there last sunday and surprisingly interesting as was recommended by a friend and not sure what to expect. So worth it and the whole visit takes approximately one and a half hours with many buildings to walk through and browse the history. All the volunteers were so knowledgeable and helpful and to see all the work and restoration done... More

this is a ittle gem some 15 kms from the city.Give yourself about 3/4 hours to really get into the history and see the infrastructure of the fort . There is a small but beautiful scenic restaurant overlooking the entrance of the harbour If in luck you may see a transatlantic liner departing which seems so close.
