  • Okay so Nenagh castle may not be a huge castle that you would travel miles to see but if you are in the area it’s a fantastic place to spend and hour or so. It has been beautifully restored and the cl...  more »
  • There is nothing left of the interior of the castle keep, the only section of the castle left at all. A trip to Nenagh Castle is no trip to Bunratty Castle by any stretch of the imagination.  more »
  • A very tangible relic of what was once a most important castle. Located near the centre of the town, beside the excellent Steeple restaurant and the Heritage Museum. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • Quiet and cozy place to spend time with, especially it's next to the cathedral. There is also nice book cafe nearby. The castle was close when we went there so we have not been at the top. But must be cool to see the view of the city from up there. The castle is located at the center of the city, so it cannot be missed even when you're just passing through.
  • View from top is amazing. Restoration was very good
  • Nice staff. Interesting place
  • Beautiful place. My favourite part of Nenagh. Nothing better than standing at the top admiring the beautiful view. There's historical info on the walls too.
  • The impressing round tower and the ruins of the former gatehouse are the only remains of the once great 13th century castle of the ever present Butler family. Located in the heart of the city of Nenagh the amazing panoramic view is well worth the climb up the 100 steps up to the tower top. Watch your steps though as the stairs are narrow and the steps are uneven in places.
