My husband & I visited the castle & museum after seeing it in a tourism brochure. We spent 4 hours here! The castle was being restored but the museum was so well set out & the gardens were spectacular! I will recommend to all our Aussie friends.

A nice easy place to visit - there were lots of families playing in the grounds and people just walking and enjoying the environment - could not visit inside the castle due to renovations - but had really nice walk around the lakes in the gardens, very interesting wander through the agricultural museum and a nice lunch - if you have time just wander around - forgot to mention the really nice staff (especially the guy on the car park entrance)

Spent a great afternoon here , famine exhibition is inspiring and the agricultural exhibition is a fantastic. Good facilities on site for a meal or cuppa and beautiful grounds for walking. Castle was unfortunately closed for restoration on our visit but i would still highly reccomend a visit.
