Spent most of the day in this beautiful castle, lots to see inside, amazing Gorey pier view from the castle. Took loads of fantastic photos, it’s definitely worth a visit. Bus 1, 1A, 2 and 13 get to here.

The site and displays put English Heritage to shame. Although there are many twists and turns and ‘impossible’ spiral stairs each turn is so interesting. In one of the early towers is a massive wooden manakin with various wounds from the Middle Ages - kids...More

I thought this was better than Elizabeth Castle. Before commencing your tour it is worth watching the video presentation, approximately 7 minutes, which explains the history of the castle. This is shown in a room near the café, close to the entrance. The castle has...More

Mount Orguel is definitely best as there are many rooms to explore and the views are great.Quite a few staircases so not so assessable for those with walking difficulties.The village of Gorey is worth exploring.
