“Wow! With care!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

The castle itself was quite interesting, but I would have liked more info. Perhaps a guide book? A shame the place was littered with dumped desks, which spoilt the atmosphere.
The ship wreck museum within the castle was fascinating, albeit a bit disjointed, but you take your life in your hands going up the stairs to view the ship wreck! Beware of the badly damaged carpet - a major trip hazard, & of the sticking out concrete post, unless you want a sore head!

“Fascinating”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Inside Kyrenia Castle so you pay for entrance. The museum is well worth it and is an interesting insight into the maritime world of the ancients. The ship itself is kept in an air conditioned room which is great when it is hot outside! Simple cafe outside for a cool drink.
