  • Not a great deal to do or see at this castle, quick 5 minute visit and it was done. On the plus side it's free.  more »

  • We spent well over an hour here just taking it in. The whole thing is free and open and huge chunks of the castle are intact. There are several information placards around as well but I loved just wandering over the grounds. I highly recommend even a passing visit.
  • If you like history you can't miss an opportunity to visit Roscommon Castle. Although it's just ruins of the castle, it still feels like stepping back in time. The stone walls are fantastic to look at and you find yourself imagining what it must have been like living in it years ago.
  • It's free! And there is a sign posted by the castle, explaining what it looked like in the 4th century. It's kind of hard to get to. You have to go down a lane that leads to a park on the backside of the castle. Still cool!
  • Great history. Well kept.
  • Lovely place nice little park area there too
