“Very pretty, close to Sligo city centre”

Great castle to visit. They provide guided tours, or you can walk at your own pace and follow the self guided map. We were a bit tight on time and did not participate in the tour but from what little we heard when nearby the guide seemed very informative. There is a small admission fee, whether participating in the guides tour or not, but well worth the experience. The castle is in  very good condition so you get a great picture of what it was like years ago. Beautiful scenery nearby and not too far away from Sligo's city centre.

Had a guided tour of the castle with the lovely Anna Mai, she was a fantastic guide whose enthusiasm really brought the castle to life. Would highly recommend and the prices cannot be beaten €3 adult & €1 child. Situated on the shores of Lough Gill, the view over the lake is stunning. Well worth a visit

Anna Mai our guide was fantastic, enthusiastic, full of beans and it is very much worth doing the quick tour if you visit, the whole diversion was under an hour. Lough Gill is a hidden gem, can't believe there are so few tourists

We didn't expect much just to kill time when we visited the castle.It was excellant. Our guide was very informative and had the knack of holding his audience. His tour through the castle was very good. On a summers day the Loch would be beautiful, it was very windy when we visited. It turned out to be a wonderful couple of hours, well worth it. Oh, and you can tell it's been lovingly restored!
