If you have a bad knee, don't walk to the fort! However, you will miss a great woodworking studio on the way (we bought bowls). The fort is a DO NOT MISS.

This fort is well worth the drive out from Kinsale. The associated history is amazing and the reasons this fort was deemed to be so important to the country. Most is in a state of ruins, but clearly enough remains to impress upon visitors the purpose for which it was intended. An extraordinary design an layout. Impressive.

Charles Fort is a don't miss attraction in Kinsale. The tour by a well informed guide is interesting and the fort an interesting historical sight to explore. On a sunny day it is a nice walk for those in good condition (hills).

Charlee Fort was a great exhibit of the star fort and the history of the area. The walk ways are very well laid out to be able to see all of the remains of the fort as well as lovely views of Kinsale. We enjoyed it vert much--worth the visit!

I walked there on the High road and came back on the Scilly walk along the water. The Fort is well worth seeing. There is so much history.
