Overall Guide : The castle and the town is very quaint and very beautiful, for those who are interested there is a brewery :) and a well-stocked supermarket. The only problem is that you have to travel many kilometres to get there, but... more luckily there's a port nearby (I don't know if there are routes for passengers, I left from Dublin). The people are very hospitable. I don't what the prices are like there now.
