  • Walking over the bridge of Kinsale about 45 minutes, Vista is great Fort of not accessible to my knowledge, this ruins of houses next door and a coastal battery at the foot of the Hill, all free erkundbar. In the summer, there will be a pedestrian ferry which avoids the detour over the bridge. We have not found but in February. Slippery when wet!

  • Not a lot to say really, a beautiful Saturday morning walk from Kinsale to here, good views of the harbour. 
  • I was well impressed by this fort. This is free of charge to visit. Once your willing to climb some grass slopes and small paths. Again there are fantastic views of the ocean.

  • Great views but the fort itself is not accessible. The walk over is very nice. There is also a small beach nearby, perfect for a sunny day!
  • Fantastic views at the end of a great walk. Do not forget to visit Charles Fort opposite which has been much restored in recent years.
  • Wonderful walks around and down to the Blockhouse. Great views all the way around, but it's sad that you can't climb to the top of the towers any more (Health and Safety, eh?)
  • Very tranquil and pretty. Few tourists as it is outside reasonable walking distance for most touristy types.
  • Beautiful, relaxing, and exciting all at once
