Well worth a visit
Sep 2021
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.

Interesting visit
Sep 2021 • Couples
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.

Very good restored castle

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 SHUT Aug 2021

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

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

Interesting for local history.

Full of history but still quite a small castle. Prices a bit on the steep side for the attraction.Worth a visit if you want to find out more about the local history.

We drove for 3 hours to visit, Donegal Castle, only to find a notice on the door saying its closed!! Yet tripadvisor had given its opening times for the day, really crappy organisation on whoever is in charge of their social media.

It always amazes me how you can stop in in a small town in Ireland and get to experience how the people felt in a way with a giant castle overlooking their town. Quite impressive.
