As other people have written this is more a ruin than a fort but it is an easy walk and there is a great view of the harbor. If you can take a walk to the beach right by it is very pretty view as...More
The six kilometer round trip walk is the perfect counter part to all of the eating one does in Kinsale. We did this walk on each of our two stays and really enjoy the history and the beautiful views from the hill tops.
