Really great tour - the guide was super helpful and answered all our questions and the tour was free which was amazing. Gave us a great overview of the area and Irish history - would definitely recommend - but not for the scared of heights!

Hi there, Unfortunately the Castle will not be open in October, however you can try calling Desmond Hall, on 003536977408, and you may be able to arrange a tour.
