  • A nice looking tower house, in good upkeep, which is almost in town so rather accessible even by foot. Lots of parking in the college parking lot a few better away. The castle is restored in a non authentic way with lots of furniture and decorations that are irrelevant or anachronistic to the period when the castle was used for it's original purpose. Three guided tours are performed on most days, though if there's and event then tours may be postponed.
  • It's beauty remains in its simplicity. Not overdone for tourists. The surroundings look almost untouched, I still have to visit its interior. Beautiful place also to see the sunset.
