  • Amazing ruined castle included in the overseas visitor pass. Must listen to the audio guides. The family who made this castle was definitely something! Def check out the chapel and crypt!! Our kids loved climbing the ruins.
  • There is not a lot of the original castle left but what remains is interesting to walk around and the site itself sits in some beautiful countryside. It's with taking a picnic on a fine day and sitting and enjoying the atmosphere.
  • Enjoyed the fact that everything isn't fenced off and you are able to make your own route around the site
  • Nice little 14th century 🏰 with a lot of history. Ideal for a picnic
  • Would have been lovely in its day but was in ruins when I visited
