“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2010

Parkes Castle is on the Sligo/Leitrim border - a restored plantation castle from the 17th century located on the shores of Lough Gill. Beautifully restored using local crafts men with an amazing oak spiral stair case. The castle has been restored to show part of the original moat as well as the remains of a 16th century tower house & original steam room located on the grounds which would have been used to treat various aliments!!
Well worth taking a guided tour, they run quite frequently subject to demand. Cost only €3 for an adult too!
