Enjoyed our short but informative tour of the restored keep of the castle. Guide did his best with little enough detail to spur interest. Lovely spot, very cheap €3 but the tour could have taken in the whole site.

If you find yourself in the area, it’s a nice walk about the castle. We didn’t pay for a tour but spent about 30mins looking around. Lovely views and enjoyed a quick stop in the small coffee shop too.
