  • Enchanting place. The Yeats poetry tour boat leaves from here. Do check out this lovely castle on this gorgeous lake.
  • Lovely view from here. Was outside visiting
  • Very informative. Good tour and film.
  • The complete history of this location is so interesting that I wish the tour went on for another hour. The tour includes out buildings and the living quarters of the Parke family and then goes outside and see the footprint of the original castle owned by o'Rourke. O'Rourke was executed by the British for helping a survivor from a Spanish Armada shipwreck.
  • Beautiful location onthe shore of Lough Gill. The self-guided tour won't take you long but it's quite interesting and the lady at reception was very friendly and helpful.
