NORMAN CASTLE IN MAYNOOTH COUNTY KILDARE
The partly ruined castle is now a tourist attraction, with limited access.
Maynooth Castle is a ruined 12th century castle in Maynooth, County Kildare, Ireland which stands at the entrance to the South Campus of Maynooth University. Constructed in the early 13th century, it became the primary residence of the Kildare Fitzmaurice and Fitzgerald family.
Restoration work on the castle was undertaken by the Office of Public Works in February 2000 to develop it into a Heritage Site. It is now open to the public from June to October, 10.00 a.m. – 5.45 p.m.
