With Elizabeth Fort.

Take a guided tour of Elizabeth Fort, the 17th century star-shaped fortification in Cork City centre. Hear about the fort’s history, with particular reference to its connection to all things maritime. This fort has an immense link to the harbour and the maritime history of Cork City. It was built to protect the city from forces arriving by water, which indeed happened in 1690. Later on it was used as a convict depot, holding prisoners prior to transportation to Australia.
