It was such a treat to be able to walk around this old ruin and have the place all to ourselves, well worth taking in if you're in the area, especially since it is FREE. We parked at the side of the road not far...More

We visited here, found it easy enough, but could not find anywhere to park, but there was a wide gate, we opened it, backed our little rental car in, then closed the gate behind us. Then we walked up the small hill and over to...More

You have to drive off the beaten track to find Castle Roche but it is worth the drive! Limited parking so park on the side of the road and take care to close all gates and enjoy looking at this part of history.

We had received a tip from a friend about this place. We wouldn't have known a thing about it otherwise, and we're so glad we did! We landed in Dublin, drove up to Newgrange, then went to Castle Roche. We let ourselves in via the...More

Easy to get to, free entry, there is no parking but it is on a quiet country road so just pull in on the road side.

For the life of me I can't understand some people. Forget the review from the person who didn't go to the castle because he couldn't find a place to park.....it's not a big deal. Here's the scoop: the castle sits back off the road, and...More
