I have visited Ferns castle several times over the past 3 years.
It is a striking castle, most of which is in ruins, however the tour brings visitors right up through each floor of the remaining turret, which is beautifully well preserved.
The tour guides are excellent and are all very knowledgeable about the history of the castle and the area so they are really interesting, even for my kids (7 and 10) who never fail to be fascinated by their stories of battles and kings and queens.
When you get to the top there is a spectacular view in all directions which is quite a treat after climbing so many stone steps!
There is a visitor centre with some tapestry on display and a tiny coffee shop which never seems to have much available to purchase!
Best of all, entrance to the castle with a tour guide to show you around and tell you all about it is completely FREE.
