Limerick castle re-opening to public after €1.6m restoration programme

Desmond Castle in Askeaton in Co Limerick, opened to the public

Desmond Castle in Askeaton in Co Limerick, regarded as one of the most significant medieval castles in Munster, is finally opened to the public after over a decade of painstaking conservation and restoration work, costing over €1.6 million.

Originally a Norman castle, it dates back to 1199, but was principally associated with the Earls of Desmond, the prominent family who ruled Munster for several hundred years from the 1400s.
