Although we enjoyed the meandering footpaths through faery glades of holly and bluebells (not yet in flower) as a visitor we were a bit shocked to see black binbags full of rubbish beneath trees edging the woodland paths. The castle gave an air of genteel dereliction, swathed in moss and ivy, even after reading the car parks information board on its actual age, visitors could be fooled into believing it was a genuine medieval pile, if not for the cans,remains of fires and broken glass every where. The fact that very young children need to be kept away from the edges is a matter for upbringing not Clonmel as i noticed one reviewer before me has written, with a little bit more care, maybe some enterprising youth group or simply a weekend or five with a group of willing volunteers to turn this idyll back around, all this said it is a lovely peaceful place, and can be cycled too! always a plus in our book.
