This is a 12th century castle in Kinvara. It is a big tourist attraction and it is easy to see why: it positively reeks of past centuries, and you can climb to the ramparts and see forever over the beautiful Galway Bay. You can even book a seat at a medieval feast in the evening, where you will be served mead by girls in period costume. Many Irish writers of renown have stayed in Dun Guaire: Yeats, Synge, Shaw. The castle was a hotbed of creativity in the early 20th century.
