Visit the Millmount Fort

A fortified tower

The Millmount Fort would have been the seat of the Cromwellian conquest, and would have been destroyed a century later, giving way to the construction of the tower we know today. (Which was built in 1714). Of a cylindrical shape, the tower has 2 floors, and is covered by a conical roof.

It was nevertheless damaged by the Irish Civil War of 1922, and had to undergo heavy bombardments and other cannon fire which damaged the defensive walls of the building. The tower was nevertheless restored, and has now been converted into a museum. It is now open to visitors.

There is an interesting exhibition on the history of the fort, and you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the town of Drogheda. The site has a nice cachet, and has been rather well laid out to be converted into a museum. A must see, if you want to discover Irish history, and learn more about Drogheda!
