  • I enjoyed walking around this Norman-Irish castle as much as I enjoyed walking around the market town. It wasn't open because I was there early in the morning, but it was lovely to look at.  more »

  • A nice castle. Movie inside with some history about castle and general about ireland. And it doesnt cost a fortune.
  • Friendly knowledgeable visitor centre staff taking time out to answer questions about the castle. Restored during various different periods. Great place for the whole family. Paid parking nearby.
  • It's a lovely experience but simple. Great to get a sense of the history of the area, the video is lovely to watch and it's cool to see the views from the top.
  • 3-story Tour and a 20min movie about the history of the castle. Worth a visit
  • For what it is, it is a beautiful castle. But we kinda expected something more. For €4 each I expected more stuff, alot of empty big rooms. Amazing reconstruction of the top floor and roof. Would be a lovely place for a picnic (on a sunny day)
