  • old ruin with a great bit of history attached, lovely beaches close by. a local explained some of the history to us. 
  • So certain is that we went to the place little more than to kill the time. But, although simple, I was surprised. They are four ruins. But the contrast with the sea and cliffs gives game and could take two or three beautiful pictures. Not cost nothing arrive from the Centre of Wicklow and is worth it penalty devote you a while.

  • Starting from Dublin and Ireland's going around clockwise, here you can find a first glimpse of real Ireland! In fact, this castle sits atop a cliff that offers a wonderful view! The castle itself is not anything of that because there is very little; but there are also cannons and is a beautiful spot for a magnificent view! The attraction is free, except for parking in hours, but it will take very little time. It is advisable to go there with good weather!
