  • 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.
  • Nice visit. There are guided tour from de turist center....An old lady drives the truck, which is a little bit scearing...
