    Surprised and delighted with the castle and thoroughly enjoyed the tour given by Cian. He was knowledgeable, amusing and personable. Well worth a stop. A short tour but very informative, an excellent history lesson of the area in Norman to Cromwellian times. Very pleased.

    Cian was our fantastic guide here. There is no admission with free tours and the OPW tour guides are knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Cian was a delightful human being who gave us a great bit of information with room for silliness and questions along the way. This seems like a small place, but there is a lot here, like the "murder hole." Ha!
