  • Well worth a visit, located close to Dungarvan harbour. The admittance is free and you will find a very informative exhibition of the castles past. Strolling the castle grounds you will find the impressive remains of the once central shell-castle. Ongoing restorative works prevent entering that part of the castle and you will only be able to glimpse through the windows of the adjourning tower.
  • Worth taking a look inside and visiting the living quarters. You get a look back in time and just might be grateful for your hotel room when you get back. The castle is in very good condition and you can explore it in half an hour. Its right beside the Bay so you will have plenty to photograph and the surrounding sea views will round of your visit nicely.
  • A nice little castle to walk around with free entry. The video they show (15 mins) is worth watching, telling you the story about why it was built and all the people who have lived and owned it. If your lucky enough there is some free parking outside the castle gates.
  • A lovely place to visit. Information through the town of historical facts. WW1 memorial with all the town's and names of those lost. Huge variety of places to eat. Plenty of parking too but be aware of the one way streets. I will definitely be visiting Dungarven again.
  • Interesting history, friendly staff and free entry.
