We came across this by accident one day. It was brilliant. Our guide was full of knowledge and good fun. The scenery is so wonderful around the castle. Well worth a visit!

I can't remember his name, George or Greg maybe but a wealth of knowledge and history willing to share.
Very enjoyable tour castle is very well restored.
Take a ride on the lake while you are there. There is a chartered boat available for tours.

Niether the boat ride or the castle take credit cards

We came early on a Sunday morning and so had a 'private' tour. Very interesting with a knowledgable guide. A bargain at only 3 euros. Sadly the tearoom was not open. Gorgeous views.

This was our first time visiting Parkes Castle and we found it both interesting and well restored. Built on the site of an original O'Rourke tower house whereby the stones were used to build this fine turreted mansion in the Scottish style. The OPW have done an excellent job at restoring the castle and we found the displays depicting traditional venacular building styles very interesting. A small entrance fee where the staff are friendly and the guided tour excellent, however the advertised coffee shop was not open when we were there.

I visited for the 3rd Time on Sunday 20th July with 2 friends. We found the receptionist and tour guide exceptionally friendly and helpful. The castle and grounds are well maintained. Well worth a visit.
