Fun medieval dinner banquet. Good food and lots of mead and wine. Singing and entertainment fun. Castle is small and event has an intimate feel.

Great for a photo op on a nice day. A nice walk from the town to stretch the legs after lunch. Careful - the traffic moves quickly on this part of the road

The castle was a nice thing to do while we visited Kinvara but I didn't think it was worth the 6 euro entrance fee and we actually didn't take any photos from the top. Initially there's a guide who provides a brief introduction to the...More

Considering the MANY castles in Ireland, this was pretty basic, small, and not that exciting. I stayed in Kinvara for a couple days so it was something nice to see, but you can go up into the gift shop for free if you want a...More
