Dublin Castle, Dublin Reviews - Write a Review
Stopped by the Castle because we were walking by. Fairly affordable admission fee, but only one level of the castle was open for touring. Would have liked to see more. The information available was good, but only spent about 40minutes here. Seemed too small of an area for such a short tour around. The grounds were beautiful and free to explore, as well as the library attached to the lawn. Made for gorgeous photos though.
Very very short area. The price is high for the time that we are able to spend in there. There are longer tours that you can pay more for and have guided, however the self tour is relatively short and only takes you through a tiny area of the castle. Still very very fun to walk through!!
What can I say, this castle is beautiful outside but essentially inside, The state rooms alone are breath taking to say the least. If you visit Dublin this castle is a must. The history alone is fascinating dating back many centuries which includes King John, too many subjects too mention. Although a tourist attraction. Do check when the castle is open. I visited in winter. I think it was only open on a Tuesday?
Interesting. I’d suggest you buy a tour guide ticket in order to understand what’s going on. The tour is about 60 minutes and the tour guide will leave you after that to roam around and have a look on your own anyway so.. prices are very affordable.
What a beautiful place! We entered with our Dublin passes but we’re disappointed to find out we had to pay extra to see it all. Was definitely worth the walk around as it was beautiful and steeped in history.
