The castle is gorgeous and my boys absolutely loved the playground. It's huge & has lots to keep kids busy. Avoca has yummy treats too.

This is the only fairy trail we have ever paid. I think the adult price is a bit on the steep side seen as no adult actually chooses to go to a fairy park!...as in you do it for your kids enjoyment. (€7.50 Adult, €4...More

We took a tour of the beautiful castle. Who knew it was so steeped in history! The tour was well worth it. The gardens are very well maintained. The entire compound is peaceful and is a photographer's paradise.

A well maintained castle, not big, but it seems like there are people still living in there, showing life like it was 200 years ago. The gardens are a special plus to it.

This castle was different from most I saw in Ireland in that it was fully furnished and in pristine condition. The grounds are beautiful, the furnishings exquisite and the location near Dublin and the Airport a great place to spend a few hours.

Yes, it states in the email that you can show the ticket on your phone. I did just that and all went smoothly.
