Drimnagh Castle
Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Family friendly
Pre-booking essential
Drimnagh Castle in South County Dublin is one of the oldest continually inhabited castles in Ireland. It is the only Irish castle still surrounded by a flooded moat and is a fine example of an old Norman feudal fortress.

Tours of Drimnagh Castle, South County Dublin, allow you to explore the authentically restored great hall with its 17th century fireplace, the medieval under croft, the tall battlement tower, lookout posts and more.

The castle is full of mystery and stories of the Barnewall family, and was one of the filming locations for the Tudors TV program and films.

Tours are provided on the hour for pre booked appointments only, which include access to the beautiful garden designed in a formal 17th century symmetrical layout to supply herbs and medicinal plants to the household.
