Worth a very short side trip if visiting the Hook lighthouse but don't make a special visit to see it.

Nice little place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of touristy places. Locals kind of look at ya funny, but the old castle is a nice sight. Was locked up when we were around, however like others, I've heard you can obtain a key from a local farmer.
Clean bathrooms near the water as well for those who need them.
No other amenities in the hamlet though.

We didn't have the opportunity to go inside the castle - you get a key from a neighbouring house - but the fine castle by the charming harbour with cliff walks nearby make for a delightful excursion.

Don't miss this little modern day fishing village with the remains of a Norman castle. You can actually walk from the Hook Head lighthouse along the cliffs and seashhore all the way to the Slade Castle.

There is virtually nothing to see almost completely in ruins this is just a very small fishing village
