It is a pity you cannot get close to the castle. However, if you go along the Mullaghmore peninsula, you will have enough possibilities of good sightings. This can be done both by car and on foot.

Despite it can't be visited by public since it's private property, but you just can't resist its charm. It's surrounded by stunning surrounding with Benbulbin can be seen at the back. Mullaghmore is definitely amazing!

While I have given this a 5 star rating, this is not an accessible property so I cannot review or rate it. All I can say is that it is just on the outskirts of Mullaghmore village which is quite a scenic place. It is a lovely drive along the coastline on a sunny evening and there are plenty of stop off points where you can view the Ocean and surrounding countryside.

As we were in the area we stopped to look at the Castle which is a private residence. I was interested to see the M and B cypher for Mountbatten on the gates. The castle was inherited by Lord Mountbatten's wife, Lady Edwina who was related to Lord Palmerston who took over the castle at the end of the 19th century. Further along the road we stopped to view the plaque which shows the Mountbatten family photograph on the beach where they spent their summers until Lord Mountbatten and 3 companions were murdered just over 40 years ago. The sea was wild and untamed and atmospheric and the area is full of unspoiled natural beauty and worth a visit.

This beautiful Castle can not be visited by the public but it is absolutely worth the drive to view it from the cliffs of Mullughmore as the surrounding area is really beautiful. Stunning photo opportunities of the castle as well as the surrounding areas.

Magnificent place to look at.very imposing structure over a vast landscape with exquisite backdrop of sea and mountains. Unfortunately, you can't visit. I guess the owners are entitled to their privacy. Otherwise they would get no peace! Fair enough! We can still admire the extraordinary views all around up to Donegal coastline.

Classiebawn Castle is a very impressive sight as it stands high above the sea on the way to Mullaghmore.
It was the home of Lord Mountbatten when he was in Ireland and the beautiful, ornate main gates gave his family insignia on them.
But that's as close as you can get as it's not open to the public. It's a shame really that you cant get a closer look as the castle looks fantastic from afar.
So, it's worth seeing as you pass, worth a photo maybe, but that's about it unfortunately.

AS other reviewers have said, this place is not open to the public, and can only be viewed from the road. Interesting to see as you drive along with its links to the Royal Family.

As we drove to Muulaghmore, we noticed a castle in the distance. We drove to the entrance with its elaborate mongrammed gate and gatehouse. We found out it was Classiebawn Castle, the former summer residence of Lord Louis Mountbatten (1900-1979), who was killed by the IRA in 1979. The castle is now in private hands; so, we could only view it from a distance. Can you just imagine the views they must have of the ocean?
