Duncannon, Wexford, Ireland

The star shaped Duncannon Fort was built in 1588 in defence from the expected Spanish Armada invasion instigated by King Philip of Spain. The fort and museum complex boasts an internet cafe and IT office, craft shop, Military and Marine Museum, artists studios, Cockleshell Art Gallery, Child Museum, Wood Turning and a tourist information centre. There are glorious views across Waterford Harbour from the fort and down the western coast of the Hook Peninsula.

 

Duncannon, Wexford, Ireland

Duncannon Fort, an impressive example of military architecture, was in control of the British until the Irish War of Independence in 1919. It was burned by the IRA in the Ireland's civil war of 1922 and lay in ruins until the outbreak of World War Two when it was rebuilt and occupied by the Irish army. It was used as a summer camp until 1986 but from 1993 onwards it is being restored and now open to the public as a museum and visitor centre.
