It is an interesting way to spend half an hour. There is not a very great deal to see. The audiovisual presentation is rather interesting. The staff are helpful. There is no entry fee, this is free.

Dungarvan castle free admission, to this lovely little fort, open daily til 17.00. The staff were very informative and friendly. There are a number of exhibit rooms and a short informative film showing the history of the fort. An hour should give this place justice.

Interesting visit. Quick film about the history gives perspective. Two super friendly women greeted us and chatted for a while. They made it fun to learn.

Hi, Depends on the experience. Having a meal,ask for the bill when you are ready to go otherwise you could be waiting a long time. At a bar,you get billed as soon as you get your drinks. Hope this helps.

Ranges from pub fare to the Tannery, a well known, high end restaurant. Lots of options in the town and near the castle.
