  • Worth a visit! We had very good weather and the view was simply bombastic! Super easy to reach. We have in the parking lot of the sailing club-parked and it seemed to bother anyone. A beautiful place and an absolute must see

  • Interesting that the castle is so old. Only ruins, but the location is great. Rocks, grass and beach to one side and the port directly on the other side. There are a couple of brief information boards that tell about the site.

  • Not much of the castle left but to stand where the castle once stood is amazing. Can't believe that the castle once stood three stories tall, it must have been a site to see. Great views of the coastline and the town of Wicklow. Even a spot to sunbath on the rare sunny hot Irish day. Great little beach if you feel like venturing into the water.
  • We walk our dog here in the summer. All good!
  • Great view of the Sea. And you can see cargo ships in the harbour.
  • Worth walking! Nice garden and a tood plave for coffe :)
  • Wild spot. Beautiful views.
