The fort is a prime location to watch ships passing through Cork Harbour, the second-largest natural harbour in the world."
"Described as “one of the finest remaining examples of a classical coastal artillery fort in the world,” Camden Fort Meagher dates back to 1550.

However, though the castle was inhabited for centuries and played a critical military role, it was left to abandonment in the year 1690; it was not until 1857 when it was renovated by the Wyse family, who restored it back to its former glory."
