Not sure we had the best visit due to building repairs taking place. Entry few of €2.50 per person is reasonable, however we were only in there for less than 30minutes as not a lot to see. Nice views from the top of the castle. Worth a visit, but unlikely to go back again.

Worth visiting for the view alone,Not much to see inside.Take care when climbing the stairs as there are no safety rails.

We stayed at the Aliathon Holiday Village and took a trip down to the harbour one evening. The approach road was a little disappointing as it was filled with shops selling the usual tourist tat The sight of the harbour castle made the trip worthwhile however especially as we were there during a beautiful sunset.

Just a small castle. I think that it is pointless to ask for an entrance fee, but prepare to pay to enter it. There isn't actually much you can do aside enjoying the view of the harbor.

I love castles and visited this near midday so was glad to get undercover for a while . I must say I was a bit disappointed although the price was reasonable at €2.50 there was a staircase taking you to the top and views were stunning you could walk around the top but was not permitted to go down further...

We visited this place but I was slightly disappointed. The views from the top are good but some very narrow and worn steps to negotiate and no handrail as you near the top, you really need to take care. There are a few rooms below but some areas are off limits as they seem to still be working on them.... More

Costed €2.50 to get in, and you pretty much just walk up the stairs and see a nice view but there's not much else

Good: entry for 2,50€ Bad: the most interesting was the view from the top. The rest was quite lame + lots of construction.
