  • The beauty and history alone is reason enough to add this gem to your places to stop and admire. Factor in the local craft and jewelry making shop upstairs, their (his) work is stunning. The downstairs gift shop is no more special than any Carols Irish Gift Shop you come across throughout touristy areas .. might even be exactly that. But loved that we could go inside the castle and appreciate the history. No photo will be a bad one. Highly recommend!
  • Wonderful site! Loved the pictures and make sure to hit up the attendant on the first floor. She was able to give us a history lesson about the Castle which is a self guided tour. But bc we talked to her it really felt like more of a nice primer for the rest of the levels. Also great gift shop and very kind and friendly people!
  • Awesome old castle. Taken care of and land looks really cool. Cost €6 per adult to get in. Would go see again when I come to see Ireland again.
  • The castle is not really the one would whoa me. However, I know a lot of local tour take tourist to see this castle, which might means it's a meaningful sightseeing spot in Ireland(maybe).
  • Awesome place to visit. Fun place to walk around. Castle is built on a small peninsula. You get to see high tide and low tide.
