Dún Cathal / Charles Fort
Tógadh Rinn Chorráin déanach sa 17ú céad ar shuíomh dhaingniú chósta níos luaithe. Is sampla claisiceach é de dhún réaltógach. Tá Rinn Chorráin ar cheann de na dúin mhíleata is mó sa tír agus tá ceangal aige le cuid de na heachtraí is cinniúnaí i stair na hÉireann. Ar na cinn is suntasaí tá Cogadh Liam sa bhliain 1690 agus Cogadh Cathardha na hÉireann 1922-23. Ainmníodh Rinn Chorráin mar shéadchomhartha náisiúnta I 1973. Trasna an inbhir tá Dún Shéamais, struchtúr níos luaithe a dhear Paul Ive sa bhliain 1602.
