Dunguaire Castle - Ireland

by Liz May. 11, 2009 6926 views

One of the many medieval castles in Ireland that are open to the public to tour. It's astonishing how small they are - and how many people used to live in them!

The view from the top. Note the drawing in the next photo of how it would have looked in 1568. Think things have changed a bit?

You may need to enlarge this to see the details - PB's scaling seems to shrink everything.

Another view from the top of the castle.

Not sure exactly what these pretty little purple flowers are, but they happily grow in cracks and crevices of old stone buildings, walls, and assorted rocks.

More pretty little purple flowers growing on the castle wall.

The banquet hall.

A curious neighbor…. ;)
