Dunguaire Castle




"Dunguaire Castle (Irish: Dún Guaire) is a 16th-century tower house on the southeastern shore of Galway Bay in County Galway, Ireland, near Kinvara (also spelled Kinvarra). The name derives from the Dun of King Guaire, the legendary king of Connacht. The castle's 75-foot (23 m) tower and its defensive wall have been restored, and the grounds are open to tourists during the summer" (Wikipedia).

  4. It does look a bit creepy! Interesting. In daylight I´d like to pay a visit.

  5. Looks like a romantic existence to live in a fortified castle, but I think it would be a dark, cold and damp place. Even in the height of summer.
