Not much to do although is nice to visit when the weather is good. nice location for picnic but no attractions/facilities
Worth a visit just to get some stunning photos of Dundrum Bay and The Mournes. The castle itself is fairly well preserved and worth seeing. It's a short walk uphill from the village but there is a car park right at the castle if you don't like steep hills. It's nice to have an attraction that is both worth visiting... More
