Castles in Ireland

These sites explore Irish castles through photos and virtual tours.

The Castles of Dunluce and Carrickfergus
This page at the official site of the Northern Ireland Tourist Board offers a fine photograph and brief history of each of the two Irish castles.

The Castles of Galway
Patrick Larkin has a marvelous collection of photos of dozens of castles in Galway on several pages, each with a little info and unfortunately accompanied by unstoppable music.

Castle Salem
Nice effort to showcase what is now a B&B in County Cork. Website has some photos and some slow-loading videos as well as info for visitors.

King John's Castle
Very attractive page at the Earthlore site provides history associated with the castle as well as gorgeous images and new information learned from recent excavation.
