This was just fantastic, the interior of the castle was just beautiful with lots of history and knowledgeable guides situated in the various rooms. Lovely walking around the gardens with good views over Kilkenny. Highly recommend

We walked up to the castle just to take photos late in the day, but it was open and was surprised to see how inside it opens up into a vast parkland. Would loved to have had more time to have a good look inside. But another fantastic castle of Ireland

Don’t miss this castle. It has a really interesting history and is easy to access. If it’s a nice day don’t miss the fountain garden and surrounding Keep. We bought a take away tea and sat out in the sun on the grass with a mix of locals, students and tourists a like. Would go back anytime!
