Interesting history lesson inside these walls. Surprising to find how recently it had been used as a military installation. A good stop while you are in the area.

Small castle with a lot of history behind it. I'd suggest starting your visit to Dungarvan with the castle because the information presented there will orient you to the rest of the town. Plus the people working there are a wealth of information on the...More

Hi, Depends on the experience. Having a meal,ask for the bill when you are ready to go otherwise you could be waiting a long time. At a bar,you get billed as soon as you get your drinks. Hope this helps.

Ranges from pub fare to the Tannery, a well known, high end restaurant. Lots of options in the town and near the castle.
