  • Navigating with the barge of lands and turning left you will come across this little castle, plus a tower to tell the truth, however ancient and well maintained with beautiful scenery.

  • Ballyhack castle was a wonderful experience for us as a family. Our tour guide Cian was a wealth of information. His passion and knowledge for the historical information relayed to us all made our tour a memorable and extremely enjoyable experience that we will take away with us. It was free, which was great. We really stepped back in time for a little while thanks to Cian and the castle. I highly recommend it as a place to visit, brilliant!
  • Looking for something to do with the children this summer? Bring them to Ballyhack Castle, Co Wexford. They will have fun dressing up and learn history at the same time from excellent guides, Cian and Frank. From two very satisfied senior citizens :)
  • 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!
  • Well worth a visit.
