“Set in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

You will find this attraction on the far side of Castle Bridge, which spans the Crana River, in the town, and it's a beautiful attraction, but unfortunately it's not open to the public. Park your car a little before it, at the Stone Jug, and walk up. Wolfe Tone was held captive here, after he was captured on the nearby Lough Swilly. After visiting the castle, continue on to "Swan Park", especially if the weather is good.
