Drimnagh Castle

Places to See | Dublin, Ireland.

Drimnagh Castle was, until 1954, one of the oldest continually inhabited castles in Ireland and is an outstanding example of an old feudal stronghold.

The castle, built of local grey limestone, consists of a restored Great Hall, a battlement tower commanding impressive views of the area, look-out posts, a stable, a coach house and folly tower. Visitors may also find the castle’s 17th-century formal gardens of interest: they feature mop-head laurels, box hedges and yew trees.

This spectacular feudal stronghold is the only remaining castle in Ireland to be surrounded by a flooded moat, which is now teeming with fish and a worthy place to see in Dublin.

Address: Drimnagh Castle, Long Mile Road, Drimnagh, Dublin 12, Ireland
