  • On a good day perfect place for a picnic. Big playground makes the trip with the kids worth while. Nice gardens and plenty of paths to walk around the castle and if you running out of steam make sure you stop and get some nice pastry and cup of coffee/tea in the castle cafe.
  • Wonderful grounds with great views out over the sea. Loved the tour of the castle itself, especially the old library and won amongst the kitchens and scullery. There's a lovely wee coffee shop there and you can have a cuppa outside if the weather allows.
  • Great day out for the kids. BBQ and picnic area. Coffee shop and heart kids playground. Well worth the trip.
  • Beautiful views of the Skerries coast. Nice walks and gardens and a dog friendly cafe. Big play area for the kids too. Parking is free
  • It was truly, truly dreadful. We ordered sandwiches, both were awful. Chicken Caesar ciabatta with no dressing, just dry chicken on disgusting dry bread. A toasted cheese ciabatta that didn't have melted cheese on, and the top half of the ciabatta was cold. But the worst criticism has to come for the mushroom and wild garlic soup. It was just vile. How can you mess up mushroom soup? It was inedible. I can't criticise it enough. It tasted of evil. Like a chef asked himself: "How can I lower the bar to the floor, dig a hole, and then lower it some more?". The staff were overrun, the wait was extremely long.. i could go on but I'll leave it there. Thank you for a live "Fawlty towers" experience, it seriously was the worst meal I've ever had.
