Gorgeous location, interesting history Stunning place to walk around. The museum is interesting too but could be better. Nice café for a sweet treat.
Hidden Gem Museum is excellent and there are walks for all types of walkers. We didnt have time to try the cafe. Maybe next time.
Nostalgic location We had a short visit to the fort on a visit to Donegal.
It's not the easiest place to get to, although it is signposted from about 5miles out.
It's an interesting site with a fairly long history, with most of the exhibition focusing on WW1 and WWII.
Depending on how long you want to stay you can simply visit the fort or climb to the top of the hill to see the lookout point, old army buildings, and hilltop view (which would be trying on a wet day).
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.
Well worth a visit The actual fort is not open to visit yet(we knew that before we went) . We had a lovely time doing the walks around the fort. The views are stunning and breathtaking. We came across a few local artists doing a few activities in old parts and they were fantastic. It was quiet when we were there which was great. We wandered at our leisure. It was great to see the tanks and cannons up close. I will definitely come back. The drive up to the fort is fabulous too and there is loads of parking and toilet facilities.
