Engaging and sympathetic

Positioned at the edge of its cliff side, this is a well preserved castle with good pre tour video. The weather was kind too which always helps.

Of course, that's because there's really nothing to do here but to briefly walk around. Having said that, we were getting tired of Irish castles with Victorian interiors (sorry if you like that,...

A beautiful castle, sitting right on the edge of the landscape with sweeping views all around. Very understated and tasteful, you're left to your own devices to explore and enjoy.

This is the first castle ruin we visited on our trip to Ireland and it was fantastic! The setting is absolutely beautiful as well.
