Dungarvan Castle

The castle was built by the Normans in the 12th century and strengthened by King John of Robin Hood fame in the early 1200's. The Castle controlled the important ferry crossing over the Colligan River and strengthened Normal control of the turbulent countryside. Totally refurbished by the Office of Public Works, the Castle is now open to visitors in the Spring through Autumn and features a fascinating glimpse of barracks life.
