200 years of history, overlooking the beauty of The Atlantic
Using the latest DVD and interactive technology the unique history and present role of Fort Dunree is fully explained and recreated in vibrant and colourful displays.
A visit to Fort Dunree will include a video film presentation in the audio-visual theatre, access to museum displays which fully demonstrate life at Fort Dunree, showing its vital role in coastal defence, neutrality protection and a range of coastal artillery.
The underground bunkers also house a collection of artefacts that give meaning and insight into the day to day operation of the Fort.
The Saldanha Suite currently is home to the fascinating “Rockhill Collection”. The exhibition is the result of many years of collection and it displays numerous items of memorabilia belonging to the Defence Forces at home and abroad. It also contains examples of military equipment, uniforms and rank insignia of other nations who have served alongside Irish soldiers on UN, EU, ECMM and NATO led missions.
Inishowen Friends of Messines Remembrance Garden: The Inishowen Friends of Messines gratefully commemorate the men and women from Inishowen and all of Ireland who made the supreme sacrifice in World War One and all wars.
Fort Dunree is also home to “The Most Scenic Coffee Shop in Ireland!”
