Not a big castle, but still quite nice. Part of the walls are almost hidden by the restaurants on the harbour. If you want to visit inside, do not make it too late, as at 5.30 was already closed.

Really can’t call this a castle it’s a bit sad really could be made a bit more interesting. Dungarvan is a beautiful town though

The locale at water's edge of Dungarvan and Colligan River outlet makes it a picturesque setting. The hosts inside were friendly and helpful. Not a big place, so a short visit will suffice. You are in the middle of town, so just a block or two away are eateries, shops, and cycle rentals for the Waterford Greenway of which Dungravan is an anchor point in the SW, with Wateford the other anchor in the NE.

The previous times I have visited Dungarvan the castle has been closed so in September decided to finally pay a visit. It is free entry but you need to get a ticket. Very interesting. There was a school party there but whilst we where inside they where outside so it worked out fine

Dungarvan/King John’s Norman Castle is a national monument, with a photogenic exterior, and nice river/harbor views. Unfortunately, our tour didn't give us enough time in Dungarvan to tour the castle's interior. The castle was an Anglo-Norman fortification strategically placed to defend the mouth of the River Colligan. The 12th century polygon shell keep is the oldest part. Inside is an 18th century barracks, which now holds displays. It was a Garda station until 1987. It then fell into disrepair until it was restored by the Irish government. Given such an interesting history, we wish we could have gone inside. It's free!
