Exploring Irish Castles

Pat Dargan

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

The visitor to Ireland cannot but be impressed by the number of castles that are dotted across the landscape. At first glance it may seem as if all these structures are similar. This is not the case, however, as Irish castles fall into a range of different types in regard to their layout, shape, and scale.

Exploring Irish Castles is a clear and comprehensive guide to Irish castles in which Pat Dargan identifies the various development periods of Irish castles and outlines the defining characteristics of the fortifications from each period.

The author introduces us to each historic era and discusses the motivation and planning behind the construction of the castles. Following the success of Exploring Georgian Dublin, Exploring Irish Castles is a further testament to the expertise of the author.

This guide is complete with a large number of photographs, and illustrations depicting castles from all over Ireland. In addition, the significance of what was achieved by these Georgian Dubliners is examined.
