The Cromwell Fort is a former military fortress, built on the orders of Oliver Cromwell. Installed on the seaside, on the island of Inishbofin, the fort is today in ruins, and offers an exceptional spectacle!
The Irish island of Inishbofin has many traces of military occupation, dating back to Cromwell. The island was indeed occupied by the latter in 1652. He decided to install a garrison there, and made raise several forts and barracks, considering the island as an important strategic place.
Built on a rocky promontory, right on the cliffs, the building is impressive and magical at the same time. Its walls are still standing and are arranged in the form of a rectangular structure. The roof has not been able to withstand the test of time, but it is easy to imagine it from the present ruins.
You will be able to freely approach the building: access is free, and it is accessible on foot along the Inishbofin coastline. Its view of the sea is incomparable and will seduce lovers of serious and maritime landscapes!
