Amazing park to visit with free parking there is a bus service to take you to the castle or you can walk and enjoy the Amazing views. The tour of the castle gives local history and touring the gardens is also worth the time.

My wife and I visited here late September. Such an amazing place. The castle, grounds and garden were all just well kept and amazing. A great place to visit for any age. One of the top stops on our visit to Ireland.
