A CASTLE! Very cool! And you can go inside the central courtyard free of charge. It's not incredbily ornate castle but pretty cool to see a castle in a city! They have placards around with historical information about the castle, the history and twhich parts are original and which are restored.

There isn't a lot here and it is right next to a vacant parking lot. Feels a little odd to say I didn't like it. It is okay. A reasonable stop to make on an extended walking tour of the city.

It's great place who love historic building. The tour is only 5 euros. The location is the middle of the city. It's easy access.

So, why isn't the castle garden just another part of the castle? The city of Dublin was founded around and named after this very spot, actually. Dubh Linn (meaning "black pool") was the name of the lake that once occupied the spot of the castle gardens, back before the city grew into the metropolis it is today.
Today, the gardens are a small grassy area, infrequently found by tourists, used as a helicopter pad for royalty in the UK. The grass is cut into sections by stone snakes, winding and weaving themselves into a Celtic knot.
The gardens offer a quiet respite from the hectic city outside its walls and a really neat look into Dublin's distant and medieval past (In fact, the southern border-wall was built in order to hide the slums of the city from the Queen.).

Dublin Castle ist ein Schloss in Dublin in Irland. Es befindet sich an der Dame Street inmitten der Altstadt.
An der Stelle des Schlosses befand sich bereits im 10. Jahrhundert eine Festung. Sie wurde im Jahre 1170 von den Normannen erobert und in den Jahren 1204–1230 ausgebaut. Der Turm Record Tower aus dem Jahr 1226 ist bis heute erhalten geblieben. Die gegenwärtig existierenden Gebäude entstammen vorwiegend dem 18. und 19. Jahrhundert.
