Long Business Description

Originally built to guard against French naval incursion between 1798 and 1800, by 1900 Fort Dunree was a modern coastal defence fortification. During October 1914 its guns protected the British Grand Fleet while it sheltered in Lough Swilly. In 1938 the fort was handed over to the Irish Free State and was an important part of the defence effort during the Emergency. It continued to be used for military training until the 1980s. The museum uses interactive technology to bring to life the history of the fort.
