Tourist information and destination rating

Category: Castles , Local time: 10:03:26, Address: Exchequer St, South-East Inner City, Dublin, Co. Dublin, Ireland, Official WWW website:

Dublin Castle is the former residence of the British government in Dublin, Ireland . It is located in the centre of Dublin and it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city.

Dublin Castle

The original medieval castle was built on this site in the first half or the 13th century. The present buildings come from the 18th through 19th century as the old Dublin Castle had been destroyed by a fire. The only original part is the Record Tower (13th century) . At present, the Dublin Castle is the residence of the Irish government offices, and the premises are used at various special occassions, such as inauguration of Irish president, etc.


The most attractive parts of the castle are the rooms ocated on the first floor of the South Wing, the St. Patrick's Hall, the Throne Hall with the throne provided by William of Orange (1740) , and the Bermingham Tower (richly decorated banquet hall) .

Lady Justice

The Statue of Justice is best visible from the inner court. It is interesting that - contrary to other statues of justice, this lady is not blinded, and looks down on her sword. Another remarkable detail is that she is looking in the castle court, her back turned to the city, which, according to the Dubliners´opinion, is rather offensive.

Heineken Green Energy Festival

There are various cultural and special events in the Dublin Castle, for example, the well-known music festival called the Heineken Green Energy that attracts over 50,000 visitors every year.

beautiful. Only a very small part of Dublin has not been destroyed since medieval times.
Chester Beatty Library is around the corner which is absolutely worth a visit.
