Know Before You Go
Make a reservation in advance by calling Newman’s Bakery. Since this is a private residence, the address above is actually for the bakery. You go to the bakery first, pay the admission and they give you the home address. It is a bit pricey at $20 per person, but worth it.
The castle is very family friendly and Newman and his helper are kind to the children. The kids can borrow wooden swords and get knighted. The tour comes with lunch and donuts and cookies. There are two resident Irish wolfhounds that will steal your donuts if you are not paying attention.
