“Well worth the time”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Easy to get too from the Blue Lagoon Resort, a ten minute bus ride and it is at the end of the harbour, also a very god price. The views alone are worth it and of course it is steeped in history with plenty of time allowed to explore it.

“Lovely snapshot of history”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Really good value at only 3E pp. No time limit for the visit so we were there for about 2 hours. Some lovely views from the top out to sea and along the coast. Lots of old stone to look at if you're in to that sort of thing.

“Ruined ruin”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

3 Euro for a walk round a very disappointing ruin. The only positive was the views but to be fair, the review is about the castle and not town views.

Very little effort has been made to authenticate the era. Chip wrappers flying around and weeds everywhere etc. Relics from the past are just strewn around.

Would never recommend to families as there are sheer drops which are not cordoned off and bad steps etc.

1 information board in the whole place.

Knock it down and start again!!!!
