The castle ruins are easy to get to and you are free to wander the grounds on your own. (no cost!) The views of Dundrum Bay and the Mourne Mountains are breathtaking. My kids had a ball climbing through the old rooms and walls left behind. Great spot for pictures!

It is a steep walk from the main road but we managed to push a wheelchair up the hill from our rental condo by the shore. The views of the Mourne mountains and Dundrum Bay are stunning. The castle itself is amazing to see with hundreds of years of history contained in the walls. There are convenient picnic tables and paved paths which are wheelchair accessible. I have been here many times but I never grow tired of the great views and the history steeped ruins.

I never met a castle I didn't like. This one is easy to find, and has great views in all directions. A large carpark insures easy access.
