Very interesting tour available which lasts about 30 minutes , a great mixture of history and humour from our guide. Strongly recommend a visit. Photos from Braveheart filming are worth seeing too.

This is the largest Norman castle in Ireland. It is famous for being used as town of York and London Square in the movie Braveheart. There are several walks you can do around the area.

This ruin of a castle is a great way to see history and is a great place for kids to experience an old castle with no worries of anything getting broken. A good add on for sight seeing.

We were in a bus trip! Our bus driver gave us information outside the castle about it's construction and purpose. He then gave us a little information inside, and then left us on our own to explore!
