  • May not be the most beautiful ruin in Ireland, but worth a visit. Do not hesitate to walk there on a beautiful sunny day, or even to take its pic-nic and settle on a corner of grass to enjoy the serene atmosphere of the place.

  • We were likely trespassing because we had to hop a fence in order to see this Castle but it is spectacular. I truly recommend anyone one that likes ruins to go see you this 1. One-of-a-kind.  more »

  • Absolutely beautiful castle ruins! Just climb over the metal gate and walk the short path and you are there! You might be greeted along the way by horses or when you are there by boats on the river! The castle is gorgeous and full of ivy which makes for some amazing pictures! Free to get into and plenty of parking!
  • Beautiful place. Very serene. Don't be put off by the no trespassing signs, just climb over the gates and walk through.
