I visited Donegal Castle earlier this month with my parents, Anne's guided tour is definitely worth it learnt quite a lot. Really enjoyed our visit

This is worth visiting for about an hour. Most of the exhibits are indoors, and the information you get is helpful about the castle's history and the changes to it over time. The exhibits on the top floor are very well done.

We hadn't planned to go in, but worth a visit to see how it's been restored. It has guided tours which we missed, so instead we were given detailed written guides. The big dining room is worth seeing!

I really expected more from our visit, there was no guide to take us round and the sheet of information although informative didn't give you a feel of the castle. I'm glad we didn't make a special trip to visit the castle.

Small castle easily walked to ad it's almost in the centre of town. A lovely square and friendly city. Castle is self guided or you can tour but either way it's a lovely way to spend an hour. Do go.

The leaflet they provide you at the front is very helpful as it has the history/timeline of the castle. The entrance fee seems a bit high but it's a touristy spot.

Our family as a whole enjoyed touring the castle, and reading about the history of the building and the area. The treasure hunt through, kept our 7 year old son very engaged and made for a pleasant visit for all.
