The cast of the dinner theater and the food and service was great! Thoroughly enjoyed it. My daughter was the recipient of the evening's Claddagh ring gift which was very sweet. If there was any issue, it was just that it's on the expensive side.

You may walk all around the outside of the castle for no charge. There’s a little trail down to the water. Beautiful building. Never went inside, usually it’s replica furniture, 10 euro charge. Free parking lot across and down the street.

I am so glad we did this. Thought it might be too kitchy but it wasn't. The parts of the castle you see are well done. The actors are great for the available space. The food was not out of this world amazing but it...More

Okay, sure, it's a bit of a cheesy idea, having a Medieval banquet with a group of strangers, but oh so much fun. Just relax and go with the flow. Strictly a tourist thing to do, but don't be a snob about it! Indulge! The...More

We had good time here. It’s a nice castle which oversees the bay which was used to be transportation point for Normans
