  • Wonderful example of an old restored castle. Beautiful history. Good guided tour. The setting on the lake was stunning. 
  • This is a nice castle but once you have seen a few you don't have to stop here unless you are a history and castle buff or are driving by. They are still working on the restoration so it will improve....  more »

  • 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.
  • Off the beaten track. If you can use the time to do a boat trip at the same time.
  • 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.
  • Great castle with detailed exhibits. Well worth a visit.
  • Guides very helpful, very reasonable price, information on the history of the castle and surrounding areas.
