Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A 19th century folly - but still interesting edifice standing high on a hill. It is viewable from the road but otherwise inaccessible. Worth a photo stop.

Wynn's Folly is one of among many square towered castles we visited. It was more the challenge of trying to find it that set us off on the hunt. As it turned out it really wasn't too difficult although it is on a very narrow road. It is undergoing renovation, which is a good thing; but therefore it was covered in scaffolding, not great for photographs, which was the whole purpose of trying to find it. Not sure when the renovation will be completed, but if we were to revisit Ireland in a year or so, the location of this castle would be worth checking out, just to see what they have done. We took a picture & then were on our way.

Felt intrieged having seen the couple of rewiews. Found it just off the high road from the center of the town with a small gate to access it . More interesting than the ruin is the history it self which you can read on the plaque.
Definately worth a ten min stop.

Located just outside the village of Glenbeigh, not much remain of Wynn's castle. The walls of Wynn’s Castle dating back to 1797 are still standing, beyond that its's up to your imagination and the pictures below. The view of Glenbeigh and its environs can be seen from this old ruin and memories of days gone by can be visualised. It is worth a quick look but don’t expect too much.

The place is hard to find, no signs directing you there and the map available in the main street useless. When we found it it turned out to be inaccessible surrounded by private properties and camper park. Disappointment.

Hidden off the road and only saw it by chance! Beautiful building! The white horse outside was like a tour guides, he was walking around and next thing he disappears to appear out through a ruin of a window! Want to get up closer but didn't have time!

A beautiful castle ruin. View it from both sides if you can. One day a horse was sticking his head right thru one of the openings, as if he were King of the Castle. It was perfect!

I was sitting in the pub there on the corner after exploring the beach when I asked what else should I check out while visiting. They recomeneded I should walk through the caravan park, hop the fence and tip toe around the pasture and check out the castle. Now it might not be everyones idea of a good time but if you like exploring old buildings on your own schedule without a tour guide or group it's a must see.

A must stop for all Glenbeigh traveler. I had the pleasure of spending a sunset here taking photographs and really enjoyed the evening. An easy walk and so worth the effort.
