    Self-guided tour is €6.50. Guided tour is €8.50 and provides a guide for two extra rooms. Definitely worth the two extra euros.

    Beware - you must be in guided tour to go to the medieval part! Guided tours are in 60-90 minutes

    It's not your average castle, it is small and quirky, which makes it special! Check out the maze garden at the back. They have exhibitions all year round in the courtyard.

    Beautiful and historic, the castle should be near the top of anyone’s list for touring Dublin city. The architecture is astounding and very imposing. Make sure to explore the courtyard for more modern

    A delightful place, not quite a typical castle if that's what you looking for. But definitely a top place to see in Dublin!

    Old seat of power in Ireland. Amazing site with corners dedicated to different things. Capable of holding very cool events.

    Take the guided tour. You can't access the underground part of the castle otherwise. The stories and sights are totally worth your money.

    Make sure you check the opening hours - the church was only open till 4 but the castle is open till 5, so we missed out on the church.

    Not big deal... This castle doesn't show how was the real castle hundreds of years ago. Edinburgh's castle is much more impressive.
