Charles Fort (3)
See post below for details of Charles Fort. To get there, head for Kinsale and then take either the very narrow and picturesque coastal road on the east side of the harbour or the uphill inland bland route. The fort is well signposted and is about 2kms away
The light was only established here on 27th April 1929. It is a bit incongruous in among the ruins! Doubtless today they would build it in a stone tower to blend in with its surroundings.
