Fort Shirley overlooks Prince Rupert’s Bay and its recently restored ruins are steeped in Dominica’s History.  For more information on the history of Cabrits and Fort Shirley visit the website of Dominican Historian Dr. Lennox Honychurch.


For Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole Festival, Fort Shirley transforms to an outdoor amphitheatre, where nature and rhythms come together to celebrate the music, culture, and food that are Jazz and Creole.
