Ballinafad castle is in a very picturesque village, Ballinafad, views of lough Arrow are amazing. Pint in The Mayfly is a must especially early evening when the locals go for a delicious pint of Guinness

There is no fee associated with this ruin. It is set up on a slight hill and is in fairly good condition for a ruin. Expect to spend about 30 minutes here and enjoy the history behind it.

This castle holds interesting history. However, contrary to what the previous reviewer has stated, it is in complete ruin, there is no fee, and there isn't any visitor centre for a film to be watched. Perhaps got mixed up with another castle.

This was a good bang for your buck so to speak. The castle has been renovated to its former glory and we enjoyed the film and the walk along its ramparts. Service very gracious.
