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.

Easy to access Castle. Beautiful layout and it is where Braveheart was filmed. We recommend to get there early to avoid crowds.

This is the only castle we visited in Ireland. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was fun to climb the twisting stairs cases and be able to go to the roof. (This would not be appropriate for anyone who cannot climb stairs.)

This was a nice place to visit, but I was thinking it was going to be more intact. It is very fallen down, and the grounds were not much for exploring. To be honest, we went to the nearby bridge that we were told was the oldest in Ireland and took a few pictures there, then went to the building across the river to discover it was completely closed off. It was a pretty castle, I'd recommend stopping and checking it out if you're in the area.

This was definitely worth seeing and our tour guide was excellent! Beautiful grounds around the castle and the castle was well preserved. Tiny spiral staircase to the top but don't miss it! The view is amazing.

Great castle! Low entry fee and worth every penny! The tour was engaging and interesting. Good to spend a bit of time before the tour reading the info boards in the grounds. Lots of stairs.

This was our last stop of 5 on a 130 km tour north of Dublin, finding a parking spot (1 euro/hr) next to the entrance. The tall keep dominates the 7 acre interior enclosed by curtain wall ruins. To the side, a Great Hall ruins has views across the Boyne River to the tall spire left of the 1368 Augustian St. Mary's Abbey. Excellent ruins in a small active village.

We stopped at the castle because we had time between tours and it was well worth it. The entry fee is minimal but the tour was so interesting. The guide had a bit of an accent but that made it all the more a better story line. Worth the stop.
