  • Don't be disappointed at the absence of the traditional castle appearance, namely exposed stone or block. This edifice had such features in the distant past but now presents a gorgeous facade on all s...  more »
  • I wasn't expecting much when I went to visit the castle of Rathfarnham and possibly nor would have impressed me as much as it did if it were not for the guided tour. It is an ancient castle converted into a mansion with a lot of history. Although it is a little away from the Center I think that it is worth visiting it (and ask for the guided visit).

  • Great playground, nice coffee shop. The castle can be good depending on the exhibition! There is often a stunning heron in the pond.
  • There today for bit of lunch and Coffee ...food was nice and staff were very friendly and attentive....would deffo tell my friends about it and would go back again....all round nice place
  • Great playground for toddlers. My little fellow is 16 months and had a ball. Took the dog for a walk around the grounds too - not much of a walk but pretty enough. Ok coffee shop and you could sit out with the dog in the summer but nowhere for him in the winter unfortunately. Other negative points were the unhelpful staff in the coffee shop and the fact that it's paid parking (first half hour is free). Not one of my favourite trips but we'll try again in the warmer months.
  • Nice playground with lots of different climbing and forts for all ages of kids. A little park around it and toilets and tea room in the castle
  • Beautiful grounds with a playground fir kids, unfortunately didn't get to see the inside except for the lovely (pricey, like everything in Ireland) coffee shop. Would recommend for a pleasant visit.
