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.

Happy St. Patricks Day/ weekend everyone ....

Unfortunately we won't be open for the St. Patricks Day or this weekend as our volunteers represent us in the Douglas parade on Friday and have a volunteer workday on Saturday.
We will be opening for the 2017 soon with a fresh line up of events and exhibitions for the season.

If you would like to volunteer or if you have an exhibition or display you would like to show in Camden Fort Meagher over the summer, please feel free to contact us here on the page.
