Visiting the Gun Park on Spike Island.

Spike Island (Ireland) is home to a unique collection of artillery pieces. The collection at Fort Mitchell traces the use of artillery in Ireland from the 1700’s up to the present-day Irish Army. The collection includes the Bofors L/60 and L/70 40mm anti-aircraft guns, and the British Ordnance QF 18 and 25-pounders. Others such as a 17-inch anti-tank gun and a 4.7-inch coastal gun are one of a kind examples in Ireland. You can also find the FV101 Scorpion tank, a British armored reconnaissance vehicle.
