  • It wasn't open for the season when we got there but it was wonderful to see. Beautiful walk through the woods next to the stream - idyllic.
  • Really pleased to see this place open to the public. Excellent displays. Minimally dressed. Admission includes hot drinks and log fire which is most welcome. Highly recommend this visit. Part of a literary heritage trail if you want to make a day of it.
  • Ooo, what a surprise magical experience here. I was here for a drama concert themed on the story of Yeats' Women. The visitor's area is large and informative and great for a concert. Terrific warm acoustics. The tower worth exploring, especially the seance room. The grounds area, though small is very postcard picturesque. Lovely river and bridge. This is a must visit if in the area.
  • It doesn't seem to be open at the moment and the area around the tower is a little rough in the aftermath of the recent flooding in the area. But it's still a beautifully peaceful area to wander about.
