If you are planning to visit Dublin, then a trip to Dublin Castle is a must. Located at the heart of the city centre, the former seat of power for the British Empire in Ireland is not a traditional castle, but throughout its history has functioned as a military fortress, a prison, treasury, court of law and the seat of English Administration in Ireland. Rebuilt in the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, Dublin Castle is now used for important State receptions and Presidential Inaugurations. The State Apartments, Undercroft, Chapel Royal, Craft Shop, Heritage Centre and Restaurant are open to visitors.
Here at the Drury Court Hotel we would highly recommend visiting Dublin Castle as it is only a 2 Minute walk away from the Drury Court Hotel and is open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 4:45pm. Tours are also available at reasonable prices for adults, with discounts for children.
