The tour was fun and informative. The ticket for the tour of the castle also allows access to two botanical gardens on the property. Great for pictures and a very nice walk.

We visited here at the start of our 2nd day in Ireland. We got here when they opened and got the first tour. Only my wife & I and a young woman from Canada, and the tour guide. Very informative and interesting.

Another 5 star review for this castle. Our tour guide was very knowledgable. The castle and grounds are gorgeous. Well worth the short trip outside of Dublin.
