The Castle Tours

There are four main reception rooms and bedrooms open to the public as part of our guided tours of the castle. Our knowledgable and friendly guides will take you on a journey through time and give you an extraordinary glimpse into the life in the castle during the 800 years that the Talbot family resided there- right up until 1975!

Highlights of the tour are the beautiful reception rooms, The Oak Room, The Small & Large Drawing Rooms and the Great Hall, home to the original Battle of the Boyne painting- on loan from the National Gallery of Ireland. The castle is adorned with beautiful period furniture and an extensive collection of paintings from the National Gallery of Ireland.
