Owner description: This 15th-century castle is the subject of numerous historical myths, including that of a ghost who still makes appearances at the castle.
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We spent a lot of money taking various tours of castles throughout Ireland. This one was by far the best! To start, it was only 4 Euros. The guide was very knowledgeable, she was able to answer a number of questions from people who seemed to be historians of some kind, they had very interesting questions and the guide provided intelligent and thorough answers. This tour did not take as long as some others (which was also a plus in my book). The restoration of the castle was very impressive, there were pieces of furniture that represented the time period (and a few actually from the period), and the guide explained their use as well as the use/purpose for each room. It is also within walking distance from most places in town - definitely worth a visit!

This is a superb restoration of a medieval castle; the informative history charts and the very informative guide paint an excellent picture of what it was like to inhabit the castle in those times
