In the late 19th century the fort was modernised and enlarged and during the First World War it stood guard over the western approaches to Northern Island. It was here in Lough Swilly that Admiral Lord Jellicoe's Fleet assembled and anchored before the infamous naval Battle of Jutland against the German Navy.

Dunree Fort and Beach, Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal, North-West Ireland: At Dunree there is a good picnic beach and you can visit the Fort museum displaying the famous 'Guns of Dunree'! There are fine views from the top of the hill the fort sits on and refreshments are available and wild flowers grow in abundance amongst the ruined buildings. I think there is a cafe there now?
