This was was an inexpensive castle to see. It has an interesting history and is still maintained. It was a one hour stop to go through this one. Recommend stopping even if it’s to stretch the legs

What a nice castle to visit, but we were really disappointed that personal tours guided by local Irishmen were no longer given, and we were left to self guided tours. The last time we visited a few years ago, we were given a small group...More

I agree with some of the reviews. It’s more impressive from the outside but worth a stop if you are in the area.

Lovely views all around this area. The castle is a little underwhelming when you see it, but worth going for the views.

During our road trip, we visited 2 weeks ago also this castle. You can easily park close to the castle for free and you can walk around the castle. It was nice but there are many of these castles in hole Ireland.

Looks better from the outside than in....in my opinion, and after touring 20 other castles in Ireland, skip the tour and save the $ for the next one.

Easily accessible, with its own parking lot ( car park) just past the castle site. Can view the outside and walk the site for free, but there is a charge to tour inside. Mid to late morning is probably best for photos of the castle.

We didnt tour the interior but the outside is interesting and a good opportunity for photographs. Little gift shop. It is right down the street from the small town Kinvara that we stayed in

We arrived after the castle had already closed for the day unfortunately so we didn't get to see inside. They do offer banquets in the evening so they close quite early. The grounds still made for a fun and picturesque visit that we enjoyed.

Very informative and worth the visit. Beautiful surrounds and well restored and maintained. Not too accessible for those with mobility issues.
