  • I was pleasantly surprised by the museum and found it all very interesting and a worthwhile visit. The views alone from the fort are worth seeing. The staff were all very kind and I was allowed to tak...  more »
  • This site is really worth a visit - the museum is pretty small - but all the interesting stuff is the stuff outside around the site. Go to the top of the Upper camp for a most amazing view.  more »
  • Good walks. very interesting and informative displays. The views are absolutely beautiful. But I would avoid if bringing a pram or if you have walking difficulties.  more »

  • 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.
  • Great museum. Lots of interesting local and military history here. Fantastic views here and beautiful walks.
  • 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
