Interesting historical venue

A look back in time. Well laid out and a visit to the roof is a must Historic memorabillia and a look back to our great grandparent time

If walls could talk!!! A fabulous castle to visit. The staff is very friendly and was happy to answer questions. I went on St. Patrick's Day and they had a wonderful Threesome of musicians playing beautiful Traditional Irish music.

This was a place full of history, some easy to miss - read the blue plaque outside. There is an audio playing on the ground floor, it's worth a listen to. The castle and Enniscorthy are proud of the Vikings, even the Anglo-Normans, Cromwell comes out of his visit better than at Wexford, and it is part of the 1798... More

A 13th century castle with dungeon is pretty awesome but add two incredibly exhibits and you have a very special day to remember. We are very proud of Eileen Gray, her architectural furniture exhibit is still as awesome today as it was in 1920. Learn about her amazing life and why Enniscorthy citizens are so proud of her. Enjoy the... More

There is lots of information on the many tenants of the castle and it's history but it is a... More

A group went to this castle with a supposed "professional paranormal team" leading the way through the night. Yes there are spirits in this castle but it felt like a expensive and non professional experience. It is small and privately owned and i think they should get a professional group with experience to lead any paranormal evenings - disappointing!

Great way to pass some time when visiting Enniscorthy. At 9 euros per person, it's expensive for a tour of 3 floors and view from roof. However probably worth it.

Enniscorthy is one of those little Irish town that visitors dream about. It is simply adorable. The castle is nice and well preserved.
