“Just ok, nothing special.”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

It was not much to see, the castle itself , even if with really one room to see was more interesting than the house in my opinion.

“Roscrea Has a Great Deal to Offer”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

Roscrea is one of those wonderful, small Irish town which offers one the chance to enjoy the all too quickly vanishing Ireland of old and to see a number of interesting historical landmarks within the space of a few, easily walkable blocks. A visit to the Roscrea Heritage Centre is a tremendous bargain! For 4 Euros (3 Euros for seniors and groups, 2 Euros for students and free for those who have purchased Ireland’s very reasonably priced Heritage Card) you will get a tour of both a thirteen century castle and the beautifully restored and furnished Queen Anne style Damer House. A beautiful formal garden in back of the Damer House may be visied for free. While in Roscrea, I also visited a number of Roscrea’s churches and other historical buildings (directions to which you will find on large tourist information boards in the town) and, a few miles away, Leap Castle (said to be Ireland’s most haunted castle,) all of which were well worth the visit!

“Neat”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We didn't go inside but the outside is right in the middle of town and you can walk around it for free. It also has a pretty little garden in back with a fountain.

“Just closing!”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We had driven intown to Roscrea, after booking in at our bed and breakfast, but unfortunately we were too late to get into the castle - it was just closing! But it looks very interesting from the outside.
