A nice area to stop and take some photos of the outside. Sadly, you cannot visit the castle itself. There is a harbour beside the castle, with some lovely fishing boats. so you may catch one or two people fishing there.

Old well preserved castle ruin. Can climb around the outside but only peer in to the inside through bars. Shame. Would be good to view inside but a good small castle in a nice marina. Nice walks along the coast through farm land starts here...More

We enjoyed our short visit here. We took a walk past the castle and through the harbour to the rugged coast line looking out towards the lighthouse. Well worth a visit.

Slade Castle is a very beautiful location and a nice place to visit. There may not be a lot more to do here apart from take photos of the castle but it is worth the trip.

It won't take long to visit this small castle. It isn't possible to get inside. But it and the adjacent small harbour are very photogenic and it is literally a few hundred metres detour from the road into Hook Head lighthouse.

Pretty little harbour/castle but there is limited things to do. You can't go in the small castle and there is limited info on display.

Slade castle is located on Hook Peninsula not too far from Hook Light. Although the castle isn't much, the location was one of my favorite spots. The castle is located in a tiny, vibrant fishing village. While we were there a boat brought in tubs...More
