  • Definitely has been one of my favorite castles. Whether you want to geek out in history, or like me in GOT. This place is amazing. Walking thru it makes you wonder how they lived before, and also what shots were used on GOT. The staff is extremely friendly. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was lovely, not crowded at all. And THE VIEWS are 10 out of 10 !!!
  • Beautiful castle located out on the edge of a cliff. Beautiful views of surrounding cliffs and sea. Best visited on a sunny day if possible. Ticket machine was broken the day we went so we got in for free! Definitely worth the few pounds the ticket would have cost if you are near the area.
