  • Beautiful view and scenery. If you are in the area it is definitely worth a stop in. Nice little museum and history of the fort and area. 
  • First of all the view is great and then the tour is very well done and there still if the Museum is a bit small it is awesome and I don't like it as well to older children than breakfast! the view of the Interior of the fort is great! There is access to the port and the old barracks of soldiers posted here. Looking more closely I realized that there was a seal against the bottom!

  • One of the few remaining coastal look-out post along the Northern coastline. Remarkable scenery of the Swilly and the Fanad peninsula. Museum on site.

  • Great museum. Lots of interesting local and military history here. Fantastic views here and beautiful walks.
  • 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.
  • This museum is very personal to me in a lot of ways. My dad was one of the officers there during the second world war as a member of the FCA and I myself joined in the 1970s and spent a couple of happy summers training at this camp. But the place is full of history and the museum has some great resources with great displays and informative videos. For me though just walking through the place is filled with the feeling of history and you can almost hear the men marching in the square. The view of Lough Swilly is also breathtaking. One of my favourite places on earth.
  • 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
  • Very interesting spot, has big cannons and museum. Lovely coatline
