The spectacular views alone were worth the stop, but touring the castle itself was a highlight of our 2 weeks in Ireland. The self-guided tour was very educational and informative and the staff knowledgeable and helpful.

Definitely worth a visit. This castle has enough signs of the original building to give you a real feel for bygone splendour. stunning location looking over the sea.

It was closed the day we visited and raining, but we wandered the grounds and took lots of pictures, stunning backdrop. An easy quick visit.

We came here to see another Game of Thrones filming site, but it is actually very cool as an archaeological site. The views are lovely and they do a good job explaining what the building used to be like.

Remnants of castel from 16th century. You have to pay £5, if you want to entry. Otherwise you can do a little walk around for maximum 15 minutes.

This sight is what you imagine when you think of old castles in Ireland. It is a beautiful setting right on the ocean and makes for lovely pictures. I would suggest going in nice weather since there isn't much shelter if it is cold and rainy.

we spent a lovely morning at this site, it was very windswept and we were hoping to see the craft and food artisan fair but it was cancelled because it was a bit stormy! the castle ruins are interesting to look at and good for interesting photograph backgrounds.

This is definately a must do if you are in the area, stunning ocean views of the coastline and clear view to the Skerries. Helpful tour staff too, the castle is well preserved and worth a visit

This stunning castle is well worth a visit, you will be amazed by the amount of manual work that the builders of this massive structure had to do without the use of modern machinery. Reasonable entry price, we even saw dolphins swimming past, that alone was worth the entry price.
