The main castle can be visited for a fee, on a guided-tour-only basis. In addition, it is possible to hire the famously gothic Great Hall for private banquets. The castle has an eating facility, and adjacent is a craft shop. The castle’s best-known rooms are the Oak Room, and the Great Hall, which displays Talbot family history. This place to visit in County Dublin also has fine examples of the parks and gardens of Ireland.
