We stopped by to take some pictures of Dungaire Castle. It wasn't open for the day yet, so we took pictures from outside. It looks to be in really good shape in comparison to other castles we saw while in Ireland.

We came here to do a castle dinner and show. Sometimes these things are questionable but this one was great. The storytellers and singers performed between the dinner courses which they also served. The food wasn't gourmet but it was good. I'm glad we did...More

Stumbled upon Dunguaire Castle on our drive from the Cliffs of Moher back to Dublin. Very beautiful and picturesque. Another place we could have spent more time exploring. Be sure you're not pressed for time when exploring the Irish countryside.
