It's only one tower, but it's fascinating. Nicely maintained and an unexpected perk: it's free to the public! The stairs are really steep (be careful!) and at the top you get marvelous views of the small city and surrounding countryside. Parking can be a problem...More

We where very impressed with this castle situated in Nenagh. The castle takes you back in time and gives one a view of how life was in times bygone. This allows for a beautiful nostalgic view of the past.
