  • A wonderful historic building showing rooms undergoing conservation, it is beautifully furnished with period artworks by eminent artists. Well curated exhibitions are regularly displayed and it holds many interesting educational lectures and great musical evenings in season. Together with a great cafe serving a good selection of tasty food and snacks and located on a 40 minute bus ride from the city centre, Rathfarnham castle is worth a visit.
  • Rathfarnham castle has recently re-opened after renovation works which included the addition of a new lift and staircase in the tower to the southwest. This now provides easier access to various levels of the caste. I was able to visit during the re-opening week which allowed for free access, a regular rate of 4 euro per adult applies. I choose the self-guided audio tour which lasted for an hour. Rathfarnham castle is well worth a visit.
  • Great play ground lovely Park for a walk and the castle is great too
  • Great playground for kids. Nice coffee shop.
