Medieval, Dunguaire Castle, Ireland

Knappogue Castle, built in 1467, is located in County Clare, Ireland. It was built by Sean Mac Conmara, and is a good example of a medieval tower house. It has a long and varied history, from a battlefield to a dwelling place.

Greencastle takes its name from the castle, built in 1305 by Richard de Burgo, the Earl of Ulster, to guard the entrance to Lough Foyle. The castle was originally known as North Burg, it then became Newcastle and finally Greencastle, this was because of the greenish stone from which it was built.
