“This castle will become a worthy part of your impressions about the Irish culture”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

We visited castle within the planned route. I have previously mentioned that castles of Ireland are similar in architecture and interior. It was our first castle we visited inside. Inside you can see the medieval interiors, conducted "medieval style" dinners. You can climb the spiral staircase to the roof. The castle is located on a picturesque coast. For immersion in Irish culture must visit at least one castle or even a few. And this castle will become a worthy part of your impressions about the Irish culture.

“our first castle”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We happened upon this castle by accident, it was beautiful, I would warn you, it was the most expensive enterence fee and perhaps the smallest castle we visited. Dont get me wrong, its beautiful and an incredible visit!
I did bring home gifts from the irish made shop on the second floor that were GREAT hits here!!

“Good dinner and show”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Very nice evening. My 5 year old daughter wore princess dress for the dinner. The lovely lady who played the harp asked her to come up on stage and sing twinkle twinkle little star. It was great and my little princess Loved it.

The food was very good and the show the talented people put on was very entertaining.

“Fantastic photo opportunity”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

If castles are your thing this is a great example of a classic Irish one. You can get great views of the castle from all around. Some of the best are from near the car park. we paid to go in and spent a 20 mins looking around. The views from the roof are worth the entry fee alone.

They hold medieval banquets here, but we gave that a miss.

“Decent Stop”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We stopped as we saw this castle on our way to the cliffs. There is a small entrance fee to tour it, and a gift shop. Takes about 20-30 min total. Not a large castle. We couldn't book the dinner as it is pretty busy in the summer.
