After reading others reviews I wasn't expecting to see a lot apart from some coastal views and small ruins. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The views were absolutely breathtaking. There is only the remnants of one partial external wall of the castle, however, there are...More
Very little to see here but if you like history and want to see the remains of an important coastal stronghold then this is worth a look. There is a small Car Park nearby and other points of interest including historical Napoleon era Gun bays....More
Although there is very little left of the castle, the views offered at this site are well worth the short walk from the center of town to get there. The water, cliffs, pier and harbor are stunning from this vantage point. Bring a snack and...More
Black Castle is just a short easy walk from downtown Wicklow. There is an historic plaque that gives a brief history. The ruins are indeed ruins and the adventurous are free to climb about it. I looked out through the remaining window hole and imagined...More
It was again nice to visit something where you were free to roam and it was free to do so, I found that this place was great in many ways. We went through the site, down to the beach and checked out all of the...More
There really isn't much to see here. This is the site of a former castle where there is very little left to view. Is truly ruins.

I see that Tinnycross House is on the other side of Wicklow to the Black Castle. Unfortunately, there is no direct public transport across. If you hire a car, you can take a wonderful drive over the Wicklow Gap, visit Glendalough monastic settlement and continue on to the coast up to the Bkack Castle, just at Wicklow Town. Wicklow is a truly stunning county, with so much to do. You will definitely visit Blessington Lakes from where you are staying. You could perhaps find a Wicklow Tours bus that can take you to many of the best parts to visit.i know several private companies run them now; for example: Wild Wicklow Tours! The train to Wicklow Town runs in the other side from where you are staying..so from Dubkin down. I hope this helps! A bit confusing I know but your hosts should also be able to advise. Have a great stay in Wicklow; I know you will.🌊🐎🌿🍃🌤🍴🍶🏌🚴🎤🎪
