Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 10 reviews

We had about 2 hours touring the castle and grounds and that was a bit tight, 3 hours would have been better. We didn't get the audio guide but in hindsight it would have been worthwhile, since nothing much was labelled, why not include that in the price of entry, like they do at MONA?

Worth hiring the audio player which gives the history of the Castle and explains each room, includes photos and videos.

The scenery and the castle are so beautiful. The food is also good.
