What travellers are saying
- Very mid-evil looking castle . King John was the English king that was in the movie and story of Robin Hood . This castle reminded me of both Warwick Castle in England and Kronbrg Castle in Denmark .Written 20 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Kevin's customized tour, to match my interests, was absolutely wonderful. I had contacted him a couple of weeks before my tour, letting him know that while an avid gardener, I had never done any water gardening before and that I had recently moved to a home with a couple of ponds.
Furthermore, the beauty of his garden in January was really inspirational. I will be looking to improve my garden.
This is definitely a place to visit for anyone who enjoys gardens, and especially for those who want to learn more!Written 25 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We had a beautiful afternoon discovering Lough Gur, the lake, the Grange Stone Circle, the Carraig Aille Rings and Megalithic Tombe, not forgetting the Teampall Nua ! But the best discovery of the day were the two volunteer ladies who are so passionate and about the area and its history. They could well be amongst the first to be aware of an amazing new discovery, and we only hope that the beautiful unchanged area and the 2 love ladies will benefit from it.Written 18 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is an Anglican Cathedral Another thing it is very charming. Also it is smaller than St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Lastly, it is worth seeingWritten 20 November 2022

Very slow bar service
A "break the sound barrier" announcer on PA. God help the faint hearted or autistic visitorWritten 5 June 2022
- We had read about this small musuem housed in the historic Customs House, and it did not disappoint. Our only regret is that we could have spent far more time there than we had. Highly recommnded.Written 21 July 2022
- This is a real hidden gem and I'm sorry I didn't go sooner.
What a fabulous place to bring your kids.
It's very small but they sure have made use of every corner and worked it into a winding trail which makes it feel bigger.
Lovely little hobbit house with free refreshments and an amazing giftshop! Wow so much beautiful stuff.Written 20 April 2022
- Lovely place with so many options for everything you can think of... things for the house, tools, plants, vegetables, fruits, fish, meats... You can stay there for hours watching the stalls. So many foods and desserts that I left wanting to go back, because I wanted to taste much more and I couldn't.
I'm not sure if it's free to enter the place, because one day we entered for free, but the next they were charging to enter. I don't know if there was any specific event or what.Written 30 July 2022

- Ballyhoura Walk : July 2021
We are a group of 10 walkers ranging in ages from 28 to 68 and with varying degrees of fitness. Our aim was to walk from Liscarroll to Tipperary town on the Ballyhoura walking trail in three and half days. The walk is mostly well marked, challenging in parts but well worth the trip. We stayed in the Park Hotel in Charleville which I would highly recommend for their accommodation, food and friendliness.
Thursday afternoon: Liscarroll to Shinagh
This was a walk along quiet rural roads past the Donkey Sanctuary and through the quiet village of Churchtown. There is a grocery shop here, in a somewhat hidden location, where you can get coffee, ice-cream etc. As you leave Churchtown, you walk on a busy road for about 3km before reaching quiet roads again. The walk was 12km long and took 3hours approx for all to complete.
Friday; Shinagh to Ballyorgan
We left Shinagh, crossed the railway line and joined the main Cork road. We walked for about 500 metres towards Charleville along the side of the main road before taking a right turn onto a rural road. We walked uphill along the road until we reached a sign pointing to the right. This boreen was overgrown and impassable, so we continued along the road, taking the next right, all the time climbing. We re-joined the signposted way some time later at a left turn when we went off road and walked along forest roads. Take care not to miss a right turn with a barrier across it. We followed the signs, all the time climbing until we reached a sign pointing to the right up a steep stone path to Carrow Mountain. The views from up there were worth the effort. The path down was tough underfoot along scree initially and across heather covered ground where the path is not always obvious. We re-joined the forest roads near Philip’s castle and walked downhill to the Bike Trail Shop. A number of the walkers stopped here, the rest continued on to Glenosheen and from there to Ballyorgan. The walk was about 32km long and took about 8 hours. It was a most enjoyable hike but I wouldn’t recommend doing this walk on a wet day. Remember to bring food and water.
Saturday : Ballyorgan to Galbally
We left Ballyorgan and walked along the road for 2km before turning right and walking up hill along the edge of the forest all the time following the signs. We exited on to a rural road through farmland and into another forest where there we got great views of the surrounding landscape as we walked. There was a steep descent on to a busy road before arriving in Kilfinane where we got lunch. Leaving Kilfinane, we followed the road uphill for 1.5km before turning left onto a horse path, then a cut away forest and then along the edge of a forest. We descended into Ballylanders along rural roads and from Ballylanders to Galbally along a quiet road. The walk was 28km long approx. and took us 7 hours.
Sunday: Galbally to Tipperary
The rain poured down and unfortunately we had to abandon the walk but will return to complete it at a future date.
Summary: This is a great hike across varying terrain and with some outstanding views. A certain level of fitness is required but slow and steady will get you there.Written 22 July 2021
- This is a really nice family camping park. Pitches are spacious and nice and flat. Lots of lovely walks in area and coffee shop on site was a big plus.Written 3 January 2022
- A must do if you are in Limerick in my opinion. It's not that there is much to see, it's more the significance of it. It is a mounted block of limestone by the Shannon, it was the stone upon which the Treaty was reigned in 1609 to end the Siege of Limerick. It is located in a very picturesque place right by the Thomond Bridge over the Shannon facing King John's Castle. If you go to the castle you will learn a lot about the stone and the history of the city anyway and I think it would be a real pity for any visitor to miss this singular piece of history.Written 20 July 2020
