    Lovely site that is well preserved and presented. The parking lot is down a little walk, but the walk is scenic and beautiful! Loved my visits here.

    In very good condition compared to other Irish castles I have visited. Enjoyed our visit. Be aware entry payment is cash only (no cards accepted)

    Great for photo opportunities. The castle itself offers a great view at the very top & features many ‘museum’-ish displays. The admission fees are cheap so if you live around Galway & need something to do over the weekend, this is a good place to go.

    Had to walk ditch to avoid the water to find it was closed with no sign to say so

    It's a very great example of a well-preserved classic Irish Watch Tower. However, for the fee they ask for at entry, it's quite underwhelming. Beautiful scenery around the fort and breathtaking views!
