The Castle is very beautifully located and the surrounding gardens with strutting peacocks sets a pretty impressive setting. Although the castle is closed, you can walk all around the lake & into the gardens. It is worth visiting the Agricultural website before visiting, as it...More

3 equally fantastic parts of this-Great, well-maintained but natural gardens filled with birds & animals & a fantastically pretty 19th century castle (not open). Then, to top it all off, a wonderful museum showing how rural Ireland was not so long ago. Cannot recommend enough.
