Dunree Fort Aerial 4
The present fort replaced an earlier temporary earthen battery at this site, anchoring how important Lough Swilly was as a defence location throughout the years.
Fort Dunree is a Napoleonic period built fort located on a rocky headland and set within a spectacular cliff landscape. The locality has been an important defensive site throughout history and is now part of a military museum. Surrounded by wildlife, the site is a unique mix of man-made and natural beauty.
