How much is the ticket to Desmond Castle and old Franciscan Frairy? Do I need to buy in advance?
Tickets for the Desmond Castle Tour are charged at €8 for adults, €6 for student/concession, & €18 for family.
The tour is fully guided, leaving from the Heritage Centre by minibus and takes approx. 1 hour.
This year, for the first time, you may also enjoy a falconry experience as part of your tour.
The Franciscan Friary may be seen from the Desmond Castle, but is not a part of the Castle Tour, and is actually on the grounds of the Adare Manor Golf Club.
It is best to stop into the clubhouse there and seek advice about accessing the ruins but a visit is definitely worth it.
[there is no charge or ticket for the Friary]
It has been said to us that the information given on the Castle Tour enriches a visit to the Friary as there is no information on site, and if you do come on the Desmond Tour please feel free to ask about the Friary.
The Desmond Castle Tours run 7 days a week until the end of September.
Tickets can be purchased at reception (in the Heritage Centre) or may also be pre-booked online.
