Lovely gardens and good hike up the castle steps. We had a great time and well worth visiting. :

This was not a guided tour, but a self-catering one. It afforded me the opportunity to go at my own pace, to look at what I wanted and to move along from things that I didn't. There was plenty to look at from the castle itself, several cottages, a Main Street, animals and shops. I would definitely recommend the Castle and Folk Park to other people who are traveling to Shannon.
