So the sun has set on another season, we’ve shut the gates and closed up the tunnels until next year. All of us here would like to say a massive thanks to everyone who helped make this season so successful. So to all the visitors, reenactors, exhibitors, Facebook likers & commenters, Tweeters, and general friends of the fort, thank you very much you really made this season a special one.
Welcome to Camden Fort Meagher
Camden Fort Meagher is internationally recognised as being “One of the finest remaining examples of a classical Coastal Artillery Fort in the world”. 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. 65% of the fort is located underground in a labyrinth of tunnels and chambers. The fort is a prime location to watch ships passing through Cork Harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world. Camden Fort Meagher is in the Ancient East and just 20 minutes from the Wild Atlantic Way.
