this is a well preserved and presented building. History legend. Nice grounds. Fantastic setting. So close to the ferry. Views of lighthouse Cooley mountains in Meath and carlingford. One of the best views and walk round to green castle pier head and mill bay.

A hidden gem. This is opposite the new Greencastle to Carlingford Ferry. A narrow lane beside a private lane is the entrance. We were unsure if it was open. Strange in the way that a house is built feet away from the Castle. Drove up...More
