    Dublin Castle

     

     

    Dublin’s name comes from the Irish word for Black Pool - 'Dubh Linn' – which is actually located in the garden of Dublin Castle.

    Dublin Castle overlooks the junction of the River Liffey & the River Poddle. The Castle was originally a Viking Fortress (see the 'Undercroft' ) & later a Gaelic Ring Fort.

    The Apartments were the residential quarters of the viceregal court, but now used for Ireland's Presidencies of the European Community and State Functions.

    Dublin Castle , completed in 1220, was the seat of English power in Ireland for 700 years until 1922 when the Irish Free State was established.
