The castle is the most impressive part of this site. It is a private residence; too bad some part or parts of it are not open to the public like the Bantry House. The gardens were okay, but in mid-May there were few flowers in bloom or much other in the color category. The upper gardens were a bit difficult to access as the stairs to the area are somewhat steep. We are not much into the modern art area, and modern art was the only exhibit when we were there. The gardens are very peaceful and restful, but the price is a bit high.
