A friend and I came across this castle online randomly while searching for places the hit show "The Tudors" was filmed. Also, we love castles and all that is medieval. We went to the other "castles" in Dublin but were disappointed. Then we arrived here.... This quaint little castle is absolutely beautiful and romantic! We were warmly greeted and given... More

I am a traveling student and my friend and I decided to pass a few days in Dublin. We found this castle online quite by accident and decided to stop by. First of all, the castle itself is historically appealing in its authenticity unlike the other castles I viewed in Dublin. Secondly, and most importantly, the staff are unique in... More

Great restored castle with plenty to see. The guide knew a load of information about the castles history and was fun to listen to. At the end of our tour we ended up just chatting with our guides for a short while and advised on some nice additional locations around the country to visit if we had time. Our favorite... More

Lovely tour in association with Drimnagh Heritage week. Absolutely beautiful structure dating from the mid 1500s, the only castle with a moat in Ireland still in existence. There is a CB school attached to the site.

A reborn castle with great people that are taking care of it. A visit you will not forget. Lots of information about the castle and the way things use to be in the medieval time from the guide. A very nice place to visit any day.

I highly recommend a tour of Drimnagh Castle. When my husband and I arrived at the castle, the normal tour guide was unavailable as he was showing the castle to a group of school kids. We ended up getting an amazing private tour of the castle and grounds by the groundskeeper Ann. She was extemely knowledgable about the castle, it's... More

I lived nearby for 20 years and only visited it recently. It is well worth a visit, though its outside teh city, and in the grounds of a school. It is the real thing: in any other city this would be a major tourist attraction (given that is not, you can visit it without having to battle hordes of tourists)

Had been planning a visit here for a few years as I don't live very far away from the castle but never made it until today. We had a lovely and informative tour of the castle, it's out buildings, moat and parre terre garden. The history is fascinating, it would be easily worth a trip from city centre to see... More

Drimnagh Castle, right in Dublin, exceeded all my expectations! I arrived alone and was subsequently given a private tour of the castle and grounds by two of the lovely and dedicated staff, Ann and Andrew. They were both absolutely delightful and full of knowledge about the castle, Dublin and Ireland in general. The history of the castle itself is fascinating,... More
