My favorite castle in Ireland (and we saw many)! I loved climbing among the ruins, exploring and pondering the lives that lived there. Prior to our visit, I read somewhere online to only view from afar as the close-up view is disappointing. How wrong is...More

Having done Bunratty we had toured a working castle and found this to be even more enjoyable - climbing around a ruin. Makes for great photographs, and is probably safer than a number of other ruins dotting the countryside.

Great viewpoint with a very peaceful atmosphere. In contrast to other sights in Kerry without any admission.

We took a small detour after seeing this castle from Valentia Island. The children enjoyed climbing to the top window. It is in a lovely setting.
