Camden Fort is situated just outside Crosshaven and sits on the entrance to Cork Harbour. The views from the walls are breathtaking and all of the harbour is visible. There has been much restoration and visitors can enjoy a well restored historical fort.

You can get the bus 220 from southmall in the city, it will bring you into crosshaven, some services will go to Camden and you can get off the bus right at the entrance. If you are driving, follow the sgn posts for Carrigaline, then Crosshaven. When you come into Crosshaven you will see Cronins pub, follow the road up behind that, straight all the way, and the fort is at the top of the road. There is free parking there too.
