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.

Camden Fort Meagher Open Season 2016 has now finished.

On behalf of the volunteers and staff in Camden Fort Meagher, we would like to thank everyone that came to visit the Fort this year. It was a magnificent season, and as always, we are sad to close the gates in September, but this allows us work behind the scenes and improve the experience for next year.

Please help us to spread the word about Camden, so more people can come and appricate the beauty of our attraction by reviewing us on Facebook, Trip Advisor and following us on Twitter.

Thank you and look forward to Season 2017
