  • Sunday afternoon adventure and was a good one great for kids to learn local history and a lovely walk
  • Run by enthusiastic volunteers. Free entry. 2 small military museums, with a focus on radios. They fire the guns on special occasions
  • Really enjoyed my walk around the fort , fantastic views. Small museum is unusual but very interesting. Also volunteers who run museum sell tea, coffee, burgers and hot dogs to raise money at weekends.
  • Fantastic fort the staff are all really friendly. The museum is lovely and full of interesting objects
  • Fantastic views of Belfast Lough. Friendly staff who may I add are all volunteers. All exhibits belong to the volunteers who work tirelessly to keep the fort looking as well as it is
