Definitely worth the stop at Roscommon castle! There is easy access to the interior and it’s well kept! They are working on making parts of the upper floor area available which would have been really nice!

So much work going on.
Jan 2020
So it is cold and windy but still well worth a visit. The OPW who manage the site are resurfacing the internal paths and are building a new viewing platform on one of the castle towers Later the local Council will have the Castle lit at night so it should look fantastic. There is a guide from Thursday to Sunday, weather permitting from about 12.30pm to about 3.30pm and he is free. The tour is worth it and a tip after is a good thing to do..

ruined castle on the edge of town
Jan 2020 • Solo
A ruined castle on the edge of town, and located in a park so a nice spot for a walk. Not much of the ruin is left but you can have a good walk around the walls. Free to wander.

Just for a walk

This is a great walk in the park. Open to just walk in. Park benches to sit on. Overall worth the walk. Has parking if you only want a short walk.

I love a castle !
Nov 2019 • Family
This was such a lovely picturesque castle to visit, a good board with history of the castle and plenty of areas to run around for young children. Also had the added benefit of a duck pond nearby and a park for all ages to play in :)

Gorgeous piece of history
Aug 2019
Roscommon Castle is in ruins, and they are gorgeous ruins at that. Alongside a beautiful small lake, the castle is a really peaceful stop in Roscommon. A cow field abuts the side of the castle; my son had a good time making friends with a very gentle steer who came over to get his nose stroked through the bars of the gate. A spectacular backdrop for photos and a reminder of how much history Ireland possesses. A short walk from town center, where there are some good restaurants to eat at after exploring the castle grounds and walking along the water.

Great Local Site to visit
Oct 2019 • Couples
We had a great visit here, no crowds at all which was great. We met a local historical expert who gave us a personalized guided tour and told us some of the amazing history of this castle.
