Charles Fort, originally uploaded by Frederico Marques.

Charles Fort is built on the site of an earlier stronghold known as Ringcurran Castle, which featured prominently during the Siege of Kinsale in 1601.
The fort, which is named after Charles II, was designed by the Surveyor-general Sir William Robinson – architect of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham.[2] The fort was built in the 1670s and 1680s to a star fortification design – a layout specifically designed to resist attack by cannon

Went to Charles Fort, Summercove, near Kinsale. Stop by The Bulman Pub for a drink or snack on a cosy atmosphere. Looking from the window there is a great view of the harbour. Highly recommended.
