We drove and parked several hundred meters away only to find out that they were not allowing visitors. At a whim they open or close. We asked the staff at the hotel and they said we didn’t miss a thing. They only allow you in 1 room and that’s not clear when you purchase the ticket.

This castle is still a private residence so, unless you visit during one of the times when they offer guided tours, all you will be able to do is admire from beyond its walls. As a private residence expect also to see the trappings of 21st century domestic life on display.

There is no real car parking available next to the castle so best to park nearby and then walk down the small lane it is at the end of. At low tide you can walk around the exterior of the castle walls.

On our travels we stumbled upon this ancient castle which used to be used as a garrison.

The hisotry and the scenery surrounding this castle is awesome. Our party stopped off on the way to County Clare and I recommend anyone in this beautiful part of Ireland to stop and breathe in the history

awesome castle and tour guide and history of the island

I happened upon this castle as I was traveling between Galway and Clare. The gate was locked and it seemed closed (I did not visit during the posted hours). I poked around and walked out to the sea (low tide). The views were beautiful. On my way out, a young man came out and offered me a tour. I had been on many tours that week, and didn't want another. It was a nice stop.

Loved the castle and tour. Sam, the tour guide is young but very knowledgeable and gives a great tour. Loved seeing where and how the owning family lived and also hearing about centuries ago as a soldiers outpost. Only problem is getting in- gate was locked and when a leaving visitor came out and let us in, there was still no reception, ticket area or anyone waiting. We were about to leave when Leonie, the lady of the house, called Sam to come down. Apparently he loves the history so much he gets caught up in the tour and forgets to make it down for the next group! My suggestion is to call or better yet, book ahead of time. If they can work out this one issue, it would be fantastic.

Heard there was a castle - thanks to TripAdvisor. Turns out it has pretty restrictive hours and tours via appointment. Access is available around the side on the sea side. Good for a 5 minute walk around, not a bad scenic stop. Please see photo for times and appointment information.

Very limited tours, only once or twice a month. We were in the area and wanted to explore. Nice for some pictures passing by. Waste of time if you plan to go there.

We were looking for a nice rest and picnic stop on our way to Galway and were contemplating between several castles we wanted to see.
Once arrived there was very little to see and the castle was closed as it is open at very specific and weird hours.
Not sure is worth your stop

Literally right next to the side of the road, this castle is worth a quick stop and explore if you enjoy castles and photography. There's not much to it: you can walk around the perimeter and see the interior (of which there isn't much), but you don't have to pay anything to see the place so it's worth the roadside stop. It is in a picturesque spot, you can get some cool shots if you're camera savvy.
