Dublin Castle
Saturday, August 19, 2000; posted by Paris

This "castle" dates from the 13th century, although it has been rebuilt and renovated over the years.

Most of these images are from the state apartments that are used for various state events.

We were also able to visit excavations on the grounds that showed original foundations and walls of the castle perimeter.

This is the Chapel Royal, dating back to 1814. Carvings of people's heads line the exterior walls - many are friends of the person who carved the faces.

Here is the Dublin Castle courtyard.

Drawing room.

King's bedroom (now used as a conference room for important state meetings).

The King's throne room.
