This site has stood as one of Ireland’s most prominent political sites since 1204. Until 1922, Dublin Castle served as the home of British rule. The Castle’s history is extensive. Originally a Viking settlement (parts of which can still be seen and explored by visitors today), King John ordered the CastleCastle to be built to play host to ceremonial events as well as serve as home for the monarch’s Irish viceroy. In 1684, much of the original structure was destroyed in an enormous fire. Parts of the original building have however survived. Now, a popular tourist attraction, Dublin Castle offers visitors a guided tour full of information about the history of this fascinating place. Dublin Castle is located only a short walk away from other popular parts of the city. With exquisite staterooms decorated opulently and lavish gardens, the CastleCastle is worth a visit whatever the weather and assures visitors of a great day out.
