Dublin Castle, Dublin Overview

The Dublin Castle is a historic structure that has served many purposes since it's inception in the 13th century. Today, it serves as a government complex.

The Dublin Castle was initially built as a defence structure in 1230 on the orders of King John. It then served as the seat of the British govt of Ireland till the 16th century, the Kingdom of Ireland till the 18th century, and then till 1922, was the centre of administration for the government of the United Kingdom in Ireland. The castle has a courtyard in the middle, surrounded by large walls on all sides, accompanied by watch towers. Over the years, however, owing to damage sustained due to time and many fire outbreaks, many renovations have taken place, and hardly any of the medieval castle is now left standing. Today, the castle serves as a tourist attraction, and for state ceremonies. Various halls and rooms of the castle are used to on various occasions, and the castle grounds also play host to musical concerts.
