    This is a very famous castle, since it is almost built on the sea and offers amazing views especially when reflected into the water. Be careful for the tides, when we were there unfortunately it was l...  more »

    Visited with our three kids, and were a bit disappointed--this is a tower house and not a full-on castle, there were essentially only three rooms to see. It was fine, but overpriced for what it is.  more »

    This tower house is a quick explore if doing it during the day - would love to go back and see what it is like for one of their evening banquets/literary reads. With one spiral staircase up timing is ...  more »

    Much more fun than I was expecting. I'm not one for music or story telling but the Irish have a way of doing both, and it's actually entertaining. Food could have been better but it was good enough and hey, how often do you get to eat in a castle?

    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!

    Nice small castle like many others that you could find elsewhere on Ireland. A little bit overpriced (6€ pP) to enter. Nice view from top.

    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.
