Due to covid restrictions we were left to see this castle on our own. We were given an information sheet. It's a small castle but beautifully kept and had a very interesting past. We really enjoyed wandering around reading all the information posted around the artifacts on view. We would highly recommend a visit.

Dropped into the Castle and it was awesome and it was full of the history of Ireland.
Mark, the nice man on the front gate is a gentleman and a credit to the OPW

Situated just off the main square, this castle, or tower house is really interesting with a colourful history. Free entry at the moment, we were lucky to have a chat with one of the guides who helped us get a better understanding of the history.

Stopped in recently whilst we were in the town.Entrance was free as not all the site was open.The man on the gate was very friendly, and explained the history of the castle well.It didn’t take very long to walk round and I am glad that we didn’t pay for entry,but it was good to see Irish history from further back rather than the more modern times that we often hear about.

Castle has reopened and were letting people in for free because it's not fully opened yet. You can't visit the second floor but there is enough information on the ground and first floors to give you a sense of the place and it's part in history.

Castle is SHUT. Their social media needs to be updated ASAP! This was really disappointing as both Google and Trip Advisor suggested it would be open.

The castle is shut due to Covid restrictions and this is not on any website. Other attractions had managed to open with safety measures in place
