A gem of a place for views Awesome place, amazing views. No need to pay to go into museum. You can stretch your legs and climb around this old military encampment. Alot of the buildings have fallen into disrepair and there is a weird reindeer statue in the middle which is a bit wickerman if truth be told but place well worth a visit for the scenery, the nice able around the fort and the chance to see dolphins. We saw loads on them in the bay - you can see across to Portsalon - super place.
Very informative Great staff at entrance. Very friendly & informative. Video at start of it to tell you all you need to know. Only €8 and you can stay as long as you like. Lots to see and plenty of the history behind it.
Amazing location We went with our dogs and loved it!! Spectacular views and such a beautiful setting. The drive there was also superb with breath taking scenery. Visiting here is a must if you are in the area.
Great day out & really interesting attraction Super day out at Fort Dunree & a lovely walk around with some spectacular scenery. Took the dog with us on the walk. Our son loved the exhibition & exploring the fort.
Excellent Visit Great visit. Really informative and great museum.
Lots to see and learn about the history of the site.
Gorgeous location, interesting history Stunning place to walk around. The museum is interesting too but could be better. Nice café for a sweet treat.
