Time-travel. Impressive. Authentic. Highlight of Ireland. A complete and total surprise when we stumbled upon this castle. In fact, it was seeing this imposing structure from the road, keeping watch over the bay like a medieval fortress, that caught our attention. Very quiet with few...More

We had seen the castle from afar. It looks ethereal and imposing in the edge of the lough. We visited and it is much smaller up close than it looks from a distance. For the most it is ruined, but a well kept ruin at...More

Went here on a tour of the area with a visiting family member, the tour of the castle was closed during our visit but it was still nice to walk around and read some of the information plaques around the walls.

Doe Castle on Sheepaven bay is hundreds of years old. Although a lot of restoration work was carried out years ago it still retains a lot of charm. The setting is great, surrounded on three sides by water when the tide is in. Has little...More

I enjoyed walking around the ruins of Doe castle. Go to the top of the Keep so you can get great views and see the historic exhibits about Doe castle. There is a parking lot adjacent to the entrance. There is also a small shop...More

Lovely place for an afternoon stroll. The surrounding areas are breathtaking. My children were so interested in learning about the history of the castle.

We didn't have the opportunity to go inside, but we still really enjoyed wandering the grounds and taking in the buildings. We were lucky to be the only ones there on the day we visited and we really took our time going through the site....More
