Well worth a visit. Don't let what you can see from the road deter you from going in and paying to see the whole fort. There is a lot to see. We began with a brief guided tour then strolled the grounds at our leisure.

located just outside of Kinsale, it is a must see on your way out of town. A guided tour is free with admission and really gives you the history and operations of the fort. Kate was our tour guide and painted a vivid picture of what life was like. Visitors can wander most of the fort except for the exterior walls. Great views from the top.

Not just the views but the history is also incredible. Really helpful guides and a lot of fascinating displays. Not to be missed.

I booked a trip with Viator for Kinsale and West Cork it includes the Charles Fort and entrance fee was included. The ruins of Charles Fort was great and you can take a lot of picture which are instagrammable...

start from kinsale
, go past the harbor and through the trail along the ocean. 2 darling pubs to stop at along the way. Look for Harriet Hale, a wood worker who has a studio tucked along the path. She sells her beautiful hand carved wooden objects from her medieval seaside home along the path, then make your way to the fort
