This castle is a must if you have family and friends visiting from abroad. The cost of the tour is reasonable and the guilds a wealth of knowledge.

There is a Gaeltacht area not far from there close to Athboy. Ráth Chairn was founded in 1935 when families moved to area from Connemara, it’s grown a lot since then! Enjoy your visit. Slainte!
