PORTUMNA CASTLE & GARDENS
This wonderful attraction just down the road from us here is open again to the public from 9.30am to 6pm daily, for the 2016 season.
Guides provide a FREE informative tour of the Castle and grounds, tailored to suit schools, various group interests and individual requirements.
Experience the unique architecture of this great semi-fortified Manor House that is Portumna Castle and learn more of the powerful Anglo/Norman de Burgo/Burke family, who occupied it for generations.
Family groups are provided with a fun educational quiz to amuse the children while learning to appreciate local history.
The 17th century Walled Kitchen Garden is blooming and well worth a visit for its tranquillity and colour.
Restoration works are on-going.
FREE Guided tour with admission ticket (subject to Guide availability)
FREE Wednesdays this season, April 6th, May 4th, September 7th and October 5th.
If you are lucky you might also see some wedding groups having their photos take there!
