“Charles Fort - worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

We got there late in the day, but the history, the tour we tagged on to, the scenery and the site were fascinating.

Educational, entertaining, interesting and a great value. Beautiful view Opted to not take the tour and instead relied on the exhibits and information we read before visiting.

“Views are great”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We did not actually pay the entrance fee here. But you can get a great view from the Fort and a couple stops on the road up to it. We had been to other forts and castles to this point and just didn't want to pay another entrance fee.

“Nice visit”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

A short drive or a longer walk from Kinsale Harbor, the Charles Fort should be on your list! It gives a great sense of battle in the early 17th century, as well as living conditions for the soldiers. Still being restored, there is nevertheless much that is fully renovated a viewable. Walking around the fort takes the ability to walk on uneven surfaces, but is not daunting or huge. Beautiful view of the harbor, too!
