A unique opportunity to visit Camden Fort Meagher, one of the finest remaining examples of a classical Coastal Artillery Fort in the world

About this Event

Due to the popularity of the first date, a second tour has been organised for Wed 18th Sept. Please note the earlier start time of 6pm (to make use of the available daylight)

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to visit Camden Fort Meagher - one of the finest remaining examples of a classical Coastal Artillery Fort in the world - situated near the village of Crosshaven in Cork Harbour. For almost 400 years the fort played a key role as a strong strategic position for the defence of Ireland, the west coast of England and Wales.

The event will include a presentation of the engineering history of the fort and the construction methods used during the different time periods. This will be followed by a guided tour through a labyrinth of underground tunnels and chambers which includes the large vaulted magazine chamber and other defensive positions occupied throughout the centuries.

Free event but booking required due to limited spaces.
