  • Retrace old army / coastal defence installation. Full of history. Strongly recommend a visit.
  • 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.
  • Amazing views on a dry/sunny day
  • 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.
