Lovely peaceful setting outside Clifden, worth parking near the Boardwalk cafe on the coast and walking up to the Castle then have a break at the cafe

The castle itself is dated 19th century and yet it is in a complete state of abandon. The ruins are covered in ivy and poorly reinforced with those who seem homemade wooden pillars and barriers... Truly a pity to see such a poor care for...More

Definite ruin, but almost all the outside walls remain. Worth the long, winding walk down the dirt road to get to the ruins.

This hidden way castle was a treasure trove and photographers delight. We had the whole place to our selves for about an hour and took gobs of phots and imagined what life might have been like back in the day. Don't miss this!

Just a short walk from Sky Road. One of the many sights to see. Very beautiful spot. The countryside and sheep make for great pictures.

No signs to direst you to the castle. It is hidden away, about a quarter mile walk I would say. You will probably have it to yourself. What a location with a great view to the water! Worth getting directions to find it.

It is a bit of a walk to get to the castle but well worth it. Although it is considered a ruin, you are able to walk into it. The walk is also nice.

There's not much of a car park; basically it's just a triangular patch that you pull into.
