Adare Castle

Ireland»Munster»Adare Castle

Adare is regarded as a fine example of the medieval fortified castle in Ireland and It was an important stronghold of the Earls of Desmond. A strong, square keep forms the defensive core of the castle that stands within a walled ward surrounded by a moat. Beside the river is the great hall, with early 13th century windows looking out on to the river, and nearby is a kitchen and a bakery.

A major programme of conservation and restoration works has been completed and access to the site is available by Guided tour Access to Adare Castle is managed in partnership with the Adare Heritage Centre located at Main Street, Adare. Guided tours to Adare Castle operate from the Adare Heritage.
