Review of Leap Castle

Ranked #2 of 9 things to do in Roscrea

Reviewed 26 November 2011

We found the castle by searching the net for hunted castles, but realized when we met the owner we recongnized him from one of the Ghost Hunter shows on TV. As we are avid fans, it made the stop that much more thrilling. Although they were about to leave for the weekend, they did accomodate us for a quick visit and allowed us to walk the property. The ruins were amazing and spooky. Only recommendations we have is call ahead.

After seeing this castle on Ghost Hunters International, I wanted to take a peek for myself. It's owner was a wonderful and grasious host. We called the day before and made arrangments to go for a visit. It was only 6euros I believe and that wasnt a hard limit. The owner Sean Ryan moved into the castle in 91 and is restoring it as well as living there with his family. We had a wonderful time on a self guided tour and then came back down to visit with him. It was a great time to listen to some of the activities that had happened there and to hear him play his tin whistle! Just an overall great time and very inexspensive. A little hard to find though if your not really looking, there are no signs saying turn here . This is not your usual tourist place and is very rural and hidden.
