  3. Ashtown Castle


Nestled in one of Europe's most splendid parks, the rustic, yet well-preserved Ashtown Castle dates as far back as the 15th century. This obscure citadel was unearthed inside the walls of a larger Georgian building, and was later restored to its original glory. A striking, fortified tower residing in the sprawling Phoenix Park, this medieval, stone-built castle instantly stands out in contrast to its surrounding lawns and buildings. An escape into Ireland's military history, the Ashtown Castle is, indefinitely a stirring piece of historical Dublin that time forgot. Now ornamented with a sprawling courtyard, the grounds of the castle have been a favored venue for musical concerts.

Location:  Nunciature Road, Phoenix Park
