Elizabeth Fort will be open until 7pm on Culture Night.
Perched on a high vantage point off Barrack St, Elizabeth Fort is one of Cork’s hidden gems. A 17th century star fort, Elizabeth Fort was originally built as a defensive fortification on high-ground outside the city walls, and has played a major role in the military and social history of Cork City. Visitors can explore Elizabeth Fort free of charge and enjoy the panoramic views of the city below from the fort walls.
Protocols have been implemented in line with current HSE and Government Guideline to ensure the safety of visitors and staff.
