Visited Fort Camden with friends for Their Haunted Movie night, what a fantastic venue and atmosphere. The work that has been carried out on this fort is truly amazing, the spiral staircase needs a special mention as this was reconstructed from nothing. I would urge everyone to pay a visit to the fort either by day to learn about the... More

Camden is a wonderful place to spend a few hours wandering around looking at the exhibitions or just exploring the fort and appreciating all the hard work, a lot of it voluntary, that has gone into reclaiming the fort. The cafe is good it could have a better selection of food but it's terrace overlooking Cork harbour is a gem.... More

Once you enter Crosshaven you ll see the beautiful harbour. Have breakfast or lunch or coffe and cake at Riverview Cafe. Walk up to Fort Camden using the scenic route or alternatively drive up Camden road To fort Camden. . Th views are amazing. On Sunday's during the summer a live battle display is laid on. The children love this.

The volunteers have done a great restoration job. There are lots of interesting items to view and, as a bonus, you get great views of Cork harbour. Well worth a visit.

The Fort was closed but we took a closer look from the top of the hill. The Fort is big and was renovated. It is good for all ages and especially for those who like history. So far I know the entrance is free of charge.

an old harbour fort reclaimed from near ruin by a group of local volunteers. What they have done has only touched the surface of what has yet to be seen at this unique military installation. Words are not enough, go visit it !!!!

We decided to call here one Sunday because it was recommended to us by a friend. For one , the scenery is fantastic. There are lots of small rooms with different pieces of history. You can take your time going from one to the other. There is lots of volunteers on hand that really know their stuff about the history... More
