The Castle is very well maintained, the guide was very knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. The rooms have most of the original furniture, and paintings. The outside grounds is free to walk and well maintained. The view of the river from the castle is outstanding.

Beautiful castle and wonderful place to walk around on a nice day! Acres and acres of grounds. There's a coffee shop and playground also, great to bring the kids along they won't be bored.

This was a lovely place to visit in Ireland. They have done a lot of work to renovate it and keep it open to the public. The grounds are gorgeous and the view from the top are amazing. Definitely worth it!

This is a huge castle but you can only visit part of it. A lot of work and effort have been put in renovating this place to bring it to a condition that people can visit. An outstanding work has been done to restore it. As if the original family still lives there...This is a self guided tour, it starts with a video giving the history of the castle and the context. You get a map with explanations but the staff in every room is very helpful and knowledgeable and answer any question you may have. We really enjoyed the visit.
