DAY TRIP: CHARLES FORT


cf2014-1How often do you get the chance to have a day out with your Grown Up Children – especially when there are no grandchildren involved? Not too often in our case and so we were delighted when last month, The Ban Chéile* and I teamed up with GUC No. 4 and No. 6 for a trip to Charles Fort near Kinsale in County Cork. It’s less than an hours drive from the country place and we just wanted a couple of hours out in the sunshine doing what tourists do.

Charles Fort proved to be a great idea and since we were all armed with
cameras (No. 6 is an avid photographer and blogger – paparali.com) it turned into a bit of a “shoot out” with lots of lighthearted photos of both the fantastic fort and the views from the battlements (and the photographers too!).  If you’d like to know more about the fort and exhibition centre you can check out their website – Heritage Ireland.
