Visit Ballyhack Castle

A 15th century tower house

Ballyhack Castle was built at the request of the Knights Hospitallers of St. John, one of the two great military orders founded at the beginning of the 12th century during the Crusades. Rather majestic, the castle was built high up on a promontory so that it overlooks the Waterford estuary.

The castle offers a 40-minute guided tour. Here you can learn about the history of the building, its anecdotes and visit the main rooms of the castle. On some occasions, you will be given the opportunity to don medieval clothes and armour. A lot of fun for the enthusiasts! What’s more, the whole visit is free!

The castle is rather beautiful, and will take you back several centuries. The guide only speaks English, but generally manages to make himself understood, provided that he has mastered a few basics of Shakespeare’s language!

To do if you pass by! Plus: the view is magnificent!
