County Limerick is home to the remains of Askeaton Castle, found on an island on the River Deel. It’s believed that William de Burgo established the property around 1199.

Askeaton Castle is a late 12th-century ruin located on the River Deel in Askeaton Town, County Limerick. It’s believed that William de Burgo established the castle, though the 15th-century friary is attributed to the 4th Earl of Desmond. The property’s banqueting hall is one of the finest mediaeval secular buildings in Ireland.
