    An Amazing place full of interesting exhibits telling you the history of Fort Dunree. The museum has plenty of external exhibits - namely large Cannons. There are also walks to go on, although these aren't well signposted - would be nice to have something to read when out walking. Some of the buildings are falling into disrepair and it's only a matter of time before they collapse. Overall a very interesting place to visit if you are staying in the area.

    Looks great, wasn't open when we were there hence 3 stars. Nice views.

    Lovely regional museum. Family history adds an additional interest. Docking one star because I think the displays could do with an overhaul by a professional curator.

    Beautiful place with a few different levels of walks available. The village is as it was and great to explore. You will not get bored here
