€7.65 – €9.95

Visit the 16th century tower and see the recent renovations - some tours will be on construction methods

About this event

Enjoy a tour of the recently renovated rooms of the 16th century tower. We will provide some general history of the castle, and tell you of our efforts to bring these rooms back to life, as they might have been in the period and with some modern concessions. You will get to see some of the Big House interior, as seen on The Great House Revival television show (Season 3, Episode 6 - available on RTE Player)

The tower has 5 levels up to the roof. There are stone circular stairs to climb with railings on each side. Please wear closed-toe shoes if possible, and you will need to sign a safety waiver. All children must be closely supervised, and no animals may enter the buildings. You do not need to climb all the levels.

On June 17-19 the 2:30 pm timeslot will be a Meet the Maker Tour featuring Martin Ruzicka, who is making a mass-masonry stove in the Big House. The focus of the 2:30 tour will be on construction methods used in our project (and you will still get a little history and to see all the tower!)

Tour length - about 1 hour. Each Tour ideally limited to 20 people - more tickets are available to allow for senior, student and child discounts.
