  • We really enjoyed this place. There is no parking except room for 1 vehicle in front of a gate, but there wasn't anyone else there anyway. Definitely worth the visit. It's free, with no crowds, and is as historical as anywhere you will pay to visit.
  • Wonderful. One of the most enchanting places we visited in Ireland..and it was by chance! Relaxing atmosphere, amazing views, sheeps and green grass around you...
  • Great historic place for a walk around with a camera. But be careful, especially with kids. Some serious drops.
  • Lovely secluded castle, a good but of castle still stands, worth a visit!
  • Great place for a little walk or a place to camp. Spent about 1 he there walking around. Easy to get to, great views. There's also a place that's hard to reach, once you walk inside the main gate, to the left you can jump up onto a ledge for some great views.
