Charles Fort in Kinsale is a massive star-shaped structure of the late 17th century. One of Ireland’s largest military installations, it has been part of some of the most momentous events of Irish history. During the Williamite Wars the fort withstood a 13-day siege before it fell. Later, in the Irish Civil War of the early 1920s, anti-Treaty forces on the retreat burned it out.
The view from the ramparts looking out over Kinsale Harbour is spectacular.
