Great old castle in fab location with stunning sea views and a fun hour but massively overpriced for what it is. Compared to other castles very little extra on offer. You can just about spend an hour here. Wrap up warm as due to location...More

This is one of the most spectacular views in all of Ireland....the enormous ruin right on the cliff with the surf and rocks below and the view of the cliffs stretching in both directions. Good grief it was gorgeous! We spent some time here and...More

We didn't have time to take the tour or walk to the castle, so instead we parked at Magheracross Car Park nearby. At the car park, it you walk to the fence -- as far as you can go towards the water and towards the...More

This castle is haunting and daunting to think people built this to have a part fall into the sea. Such a beautiful photo opportunity in ever corner of the facility. I took a number of pictures and very easily could have taken many more. Early...More

I am not sure - you would have to check their website. We went in September because they warned many of the sites close in September after the tourist season. If you get to go - go in early morning or at or near dusk and... More

It doesn't take long, but is definitely worth seeing. It's a small castle, but each "room" has an information board. If you want to read all of these and go through each section, plus stop to admire views and take... More
