This was one of the best parts of our trip to Ireland. The castle, the park, and the surrounding town were wonderful!!

“Didn't Take the Tour but the Grounds & Castle a Must See”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

We arrived too late in the day to take a tour but the lighting was lovely for some photos. Many families and couples were out on the beautiful grounds, which by the way close at 8:30pm. The times may differ each day. There is no fee to walk around the castle and grounds, which is very enjoyable. Glad to see what we did. Wish we had more time to come back and take the tour inside -- maybe next trip to Ireland!

“Fun tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Staff at the castle were open to any questions you had. The castle itself is remarkable with tapestries & paintings of the time period. It's amazing the amount of renovation that went into restoring the castle.

Castle has been well restored and is a nice place to visit. Go see the video first as it makes the visit more interesting.
