A remote location but with great views overlooking the lough. A well laid out museum with a short video to give an overview of the history. Lots of exhibits to show how life was like at the fort. Café on site for refreshments afterwards.

This place is amazing, they have made a really great museum and have all the tanks on display, you watch a video to tell you the story of the fort before commencing leisurely around the museum which took us about 90 minutes and then outside to the café for coffee etc.thoroughly enjoyed it.

Arrived when the main building was closed ,but you can still wander around and marvel at the old buildings ,be ready to climb a lot of steps to get to the top of the site ,but it is worth it
