  • Inviting to look at and must have been imposing in it's time. Roped off so that you can't visit the ruins but very nice even from the outside. Nice location right on the river,  more »
  • Had a excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide who was passionate about sharing so much great history about the castle and the entire area.  more »

  • Completely agree with Sarah. Excellent, low key, informative tour through hundreds of years of Irish history, as seen through the story of one ruined castle. Tour takes an hour, a five minute shuttle bus hop from the heritage centre, with no more than 18 going at a time. Our guide, Vera, was charming and well-informed, very careful to separate fact from legend.
  • Beautiful castle with great history. Tours available.
  • I really like castles. This is a good one
  • We enjoyed this tour when we were in Ireland. Our tour guide was also very knowledgeable.
  • Nice visit. There are guided tour from de turist center....An old lady drives the truck, which is a little bit scearing...
