Excellent tour guide. Beautiful house/castle, gardens and scenery stunning. If you like a brisk walk then you can walk from the visitors centre to the Castle and take bus back.

“An oasis in the midst of a barren land!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Well worth a visit. Beautiful location and views. Small charge to go inside the castle but the guide was well informed. If you aren't fond of walking too far, there is a bus which runs from the car park to the castle costing a few Euros. You could spend quite a long time exploring the gardens and there is also a very good tea-room.
