  • Sensitively conserved, beautiful example of a defensive medieval tower, lots of clear, detailed information, fantastic views from the top, right in the lovely town of Nenagh. Free entry. 6 year old child also loved it.
  • 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.
