You can see lots of the castle witout paying for tour. The setting itself was impressive as were the gardens and we didn't really have time for a tour: visiting because of the Tom Russell Cowboy Opera "Rose of Roscrae (sic)"

Despite that the castle and relatively modern building is not as rich in contents as you would imagined, but the nicely organised exhibition and nice well informed tour guides adds a valuable touch to the visit that everyone benefited from.

Paid a visit to this beautiful house, castle and gardens. Tour was well worth the €5 and was very interesting. The buildings matched by the accompanying furniture that would certainly be valued highly on the Antiques Road Show. You will not be disappointed.

Really surprised and impressed by this site. Both the castle and Damer House have been really well restored by craftsmen in a sympathetic manner with the work looking mostly original. Our guide was very good and informative. One of the best places we have visited.
