Charles Fort Kinsale is such a fabulous place to visit, if you like forts or you just enjoy old buildings and beautiful scenery then its a must.
Better still if like my boys you love Irish history then go visit. What amazing value at 10.00 for a family (6 of us) and we got a tour guide to bring us around the fort and fill us in on the history. The tour guide was brilliant and really engaged with the kids, they loved it.
There is a lovely cafe on site to have your lunch or just a coffee. The toilet facilities are spotless a huge bonus, I think if people can’t even get this much right it doesn’t bode well for the rest of the place !
We packed a picnic and sat down gazing out to Kinsale harbour as we nibbled on our ham & cheese sandwiches it was perfect.
As we filled our second mug of tea from the Thermos the kids either ran around the lawn or ventured into the old buildings, looking at the muskets and listening to the audio visuals on offer.
Things a mum looks for (or maybe just me) ?
- Family friendly
- Clean toilets (it just ruins the whole place if the toilets are a let down)
- Value for money
It scored top marks on all three for me & I would definitely visit with my family again.
