A nice place to bring the children. You have the castle and the kids will love the ducks and the playground.

Not a great deal to do or see at this castle, quick 5 minute visit and it was done. On the plus side it's free.

You basically walk up to the castle, read the information available and self-guide yourself through the area. Nice park, great family location.

Went to Roscommon to look up some ancestry. Looking for other things to do there, we walked to this castle. Even though it is in ruins, we still enjoyed walking through it and there is a lovely park with a pond close by.

This 13th Century castle ruin is worth a destination route or even a detour. One of my favorite ruins -- just stunning to look at. Awe-inspiring, eerie, beautiful!
