Very neat castle on the Galway Bay with some beautiful views of the bay and surrounding countryside. What makes this castle interesting is each floor, which has its own unique characteristics. A tight spiral staircase takes you up each level. There are also interesting stories about the occupants of the castle as late as the mid-twentieth century. You can even go outside at the top level for some magnificent views. There is not much parking on the site, but plenty of parking along the roadside. We did not have time to partake the Dungaire Castle Banquet which sounds very entertaining although a bit pricey.

A pretty neat castle - though it was really a very nice farmhouse. Costs a bit to go up, but definitely worth it. They did a great job in making it interesting.

It's a nice enough castle to take a picture of but inside there's a souvenir shop and a small craft shop. Didn't think it was worth the 6 Euro admission to see further. Didn't go to the banquet.

An impressive castle on the edge of scenic Galway Bay. Best viewed when the tide is in.

Lovely castle. You can see the Kinvara village and harbour from the castle. A must just to spent a few mins on the way to the cliffs or on the way back to Dublin

This is an awesome example of a tower house or castle. It seems beautifully restored and serves as an excellent photo spot for your trip to Ireland!

The location is more spectacular than the castle itself, but it is definitely worth a stop if you happen to pass by.

Nice castle with great scenery. Tour is not worth 6 euros for the inside.
