    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

    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.

    Sometimes if there is official business going on you won't be able to see certain parts so ask first. You'll also probably have to wait for available tour times some plan ahead.

    Was until 1922 the fortified seat of British rule in Ireland. Upon establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922, it was ceremonially handed over to the newly formed Gov't led by Michael Collins.

    This is perhaps one of the most unique castles, you'll ever see. In this government complex, you'd have to pay to see the magnificent state rooms, but roaming around the castle will be enough.

    You can only see the inside of the castle if you go on a guided tour. The wait is usually 30 minutes or so... if you're not interested in the tour, I still suggest going to see the outside.

    It's the heart of historic Dublin.In fact the city gets its name from the Black Pool -"Dubh Linn" which was on the site of the site of the present Castle garden.Built in the13th century.Don't miss it!
