Nice interactive tour with cool visuals and a friendly tour guide. The tour guide was knowledgeable and could answer questions. I’m a big fan of Tullamore Whiskey so I was really excited to visit the Visitor Centre. Note this isn’t a working distillery but I didn’t really mind.
Only downfall was I went for a meal in the restaurant with my friends afterwards and I ordered a burger but they brought out a pulled pork Sandwich. They changed it once they realized they made a mistake but by the time I got my burger I only had 10 minutes to eat it before I had to leave and my friends had already finished their dishes which spoilt it. But overall the tour was a good experience and I’m happy I went.

Charleville Castle

Charleville castle is a building which has been rescued from near ruin by volunteers and a voluntary organisation - it has been described as Irelands leading historical architect, Francis Johston's masterpiece. It is maintained authentic and unchanged and we rotate volunteers to mind it 24 hours a day 365 days a year - but also to keep it open to the public. it is famous for its ghosts stories and unique architecture - but it is not a state-funded project and depends entirely on volunteers and supporters - so many people, thousands, have expressed their love of the building and support - we hope you will get a real feeling of what it is to keep a castle like this alive when you visit - see you here!

I loved this place so much! The wedding pictures we got taken here were fantastic. Dudley was very reasonable and kind to allow us in to the castle at a tiny expense. I would highly recommend this venue for pictures.Thank you so much - we enjoyed your wedding photoshoot and appreciate your support. We, the volunteers, need all the help we can get. Many thanks again

This "pet farm" is not the nice place its made out to be, The animals are clearly not very well looked after especially the ones held indoors, there are animals using the children's play area as a toilet ( not their fault ) but there is no one looking after that side of things. most of the cages, pens, enclosures are too small for their purpose.
This place is in an ideal place just a few miles outside Tullamore and only a few minutes from Annaharvey farm, it should be bustling at this time of year but alas the public has spoken and it's not good.
Needs a new manager to get this place back on it's feet, if it's not already too late.
