The castle is really lovely and opens for a lot of events throughout the year. It overlooks a river and bridge and at the other side of the road there's an old monastery. Beautiful

This was a family favorite castle; we had a personal tour and were able to explore the castle and grounds. The restoration is quite nice. It was great activity for the family and reasonably priced!

The restoration here is second to none ..... the owner had invested so much to restore this to its former glory. In the most beautiful setting beside the river. An amazing addition to the county.
