  • I've experienced Rathfarnham Castle from its early days to now. Still a work in progress but worth the trip. The ghost stories are class are not just stories either 😉
  • The tour of the house is very informative. The Jesuit exhibition was very well put together too.
  • Interesting place to visit. A lot history. Good condition of castle. Tea room is pretty good. Nice park for walk and playing with children. Car park for 0.75 e hour at this moment. Recomend
  • Kids love the playground . Nice surroundings and an interesting castle . What else would you need .
  • It's not looking a Castle. But it's a nice place for children

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
