This very small castle sits on the edge of water and in a beautiful spot therefore. The sign outside says free entrance but that's only for the arts and craft shop inside. The €8 entrance fee seems large for a room and tower.

Well at my yoga retreat in the burren, I went on a bike ride to see this castle, it is unreal, still full constructed from what I can tell with a beautiful view.

My husband and I were on a day-long tour of this area with extremely knowledgable local guide, Paul O'Donnell, who took us to see this picturesque Irish castle. We walked around the interior that is used for medieval banquets. Paul told us that the previous...More

We went to the castle at about 2pm, this was a perfect time as there was little to no bus's at this time. We had the kids with us so we used the green area inside the castle grounds for the kids to run around....More

Castle used for banquets and was not open for tours when we passed through. It is quite scenic and right on the main road, worth a quick stop to stretch legs and check out. Parking is across the street
