A piece of Irish History old Garrison and castle
Sep 2019
On our travels we stumbled upon this ancient castle which used to be used as a garrison.

The hisotry and the scenery surrounding this castle is awesome. Our party stopped off on the way to County Clare and I recommend anyone in this beautiful part of Ireland to stop and breathe in the history

awesome castle and tour guide and history of the island

Scenic surprise
Jun 2019
I happened upon this castle as I was traveling between Galway and Clare. The gate was locked and it seemed closed (I did not visit during the posted hours). I poked around and walked out to the sea (low tide). The views were beautiful. On my way out, a young man came out and offered me a tour. I had been on many tours that week, and didn't want another. It was a nice stop.

Awesome tour, if you can get in
Aug 2019 • Couples
Loved the castle and tour. Sam, the tour guide is young but very knowledgeable and gives a great tour. Loved seeing where and how the owning family lived and also hearing about centuries ago as a soldiers outpost. Only problem is getting in- gate was locked and when a leaving visitor came out and let us in, there was still no reception, ticket area or anyone waiting. We were about to leave when Leonie, the lady of the house, called Sam to come down. Apparently he loves the history so much he gets caught up in the tour and forgets to make it down for the next group! My suggestion is to call or better yet, book ahead of time. If they can work out this one issue, it would be fantastic.

Quick visit

Heard there was a castle - thanks to TripAdvisor. Turns out it has pretty restrictive hours and tours via appointment. Access is available around the side on the sea side. Good for a 5 minute walk around, not a bad scenic stop. Please see photo for times and appointment information.

Nice on the outside but normally closed for visitors

Very limited tours, only once or twice a month. We were in the area and wanted to explore. Nice for some pictures passing by. Waste of time if you plan to go there.

On the road to Galway
Apr 2019 • Friends
We were looking for a nice rest and picnic stop on our way to Galway and were contemplating between several castles we wanted to see.
Once arrived there was very little to see and the castle was closed as it is open at very specific and weird hours.
Not sure is worth your stop

Good Quick Visit
Mar 2019 • Couples
Literally right next to the side of the road, this castle is worth a quick stop and explore if you enjoy castles and photography. There's not much to it: you can walk around the perimeter and see the interior (of which there isn't much), but you don't have to pay anything to see the place so it's worth the roadside stop. It is in a picturesque spot, you can get some cool shots if you're camera savvy.

Worth a glance, but that's about it.
Mar 2019 • Solo
You cannot go inside, and there are far more impressive castles in surrounding areas and towns. It's one of the only things to see in the town, but it's not somewhere you'd more than glance or spend 10-minutes at.

While the castle was closed been off season we were able to look around the outside.
It is situated less than 10 minutes walk from town center right on the inlet .
Would liked to have been able to go inside.
