Getting to Dysert O'Dea is no small feat. The roads are super narrow and off the beaten path. But once we got there, we weren't disappointed! The castle is fascinating to wander through.There is a huge amount of history of the castle and the area on display, everything from local lads serving in wars and the Irish resistance, to family history of the castle itself. There's a tea shop on the bottom floor of the castle. But of as much interest is the 4km walk from ruin to ruin, including a celtic high cross, a ruined church and various other significant sites. Well worth the trip! If you are wandering from Poulnabrone down to Corofin, you really should add this to your itinerary! The four stars are because it is not very clear to see how to get there once off the main road. Otherwise, this place is fantastic.
