It is located right off the road and worth just a stop to take some pictures from the outside. The castle is perched right on the edge of the water and really is a beautiful site.

Dungaire Castle was a great stop before lunch. Even though the castle was closed, it is a nice walk around the site. I felt like if you closed your eyes you can picture a Celtic Story going on. We were there for 15 minutes tops...More

Entry not allowed in the castle itself. You are able to walk around the outside. The path is not suitable for anyone with any difficulties in walking. We’re here all of 10 mins.

This was was an inexpensive castle to see. It has an interesting history and is still maintained. It was a one hour stop to go through this one. Recommend stopping even if it’s to stretch the legs

I agree with some of the reviews. It’s more impressive from the outside but worth a stop if you are in the area.

Lovely views all around this area. The castle is a little underwhelming when you see it, but worth going for the views.

During our road trip, we visited 2 weeks ago also this castle. You can easily park close to the castle for free and you can walk around the castle. It was nice but there are many of these castles in hole Ireland.
