Three must Visit Castles

There are an abundance of activities and sights to enjoy in Ireland. From lighthouses to pubs, there’s something for everyone. Castles are often at the top of the sightseeing list and there are many to choose from in this magical country. If you enjoy castles or want to include them on your Ireland visit, add the following three castles to your list.

 

Dublin Castle

This castle is on the list for a number of reasons. The first is that it may be the most accessible. You’ll probably fly into Dublin on your stay and Dublin Castle can be on your first day’s itinerary. However, convenience isn’t the only reason this castle is mentioned. Built in the early 13th century, it also houses some of the area’s oldest architecture. In addition, it’s quite accessible to tourists and offers guided tours throughout the day. There is also a craft store, heritage center, and a restaurant.

  

 

Kilkenny Castle

Kilkenny castle is one of Ireland's largest castles. It’s also one of the oldest. The beginnings of the castle began in 1172 and the castle was finished in 1260. It’s been owned and lived in by many prestigious families and has a distinct look, making it one of the most recognizable castles.

 Many of the rooms are open to visitors. In addition to the architecture and portrait collection, you can often find an art exhibition in the Butler Gallery. There’s a fine dining restaurant and a conference center as well. Don’t forget to walk around the grounds where you’ll find a rose garden, parks, and a fountain.

  

 

Blarney Castle

Blarney Castle is in Cork County. Yes, it is where the phrase “Kiss the Blarney Stone,” originated. This castle is perhaps the most beautiful and certainly one of the most picturesque castles in Ireland. It was originally built in the 11th century and the wooden structure was replaced with stone in the 1200s.

 The castle has been rebuilt many times and today most of it stands in ruins. You can still visit some of the rooms and you can most certainly kiss the Blarney Stone. The stone is said to give “the gift of the gab”, or the gift of eloquent speech, to everyone who kisses it.

 These three castles are just a few of the more than a dozen castles on the island of Ireland. They’re widespread throughout the country and can make the foundation for a wonderful and adventurous vacation
