Desmond Castle Adare

This 13th-century castle was erected with an ancient ring fort by the Earls of Kildare. In the rebellion of 1536, it was forfeited and granted to the Earls of Desmond who gave the castle its present name. The guided tours start from Adare Heritage Centre, where a shuttle bus will take you to the castle.
