Dromore Castle is a very distinctive building sitting high on a hill overlooking two lakes in Co. Limerick. It can be seen from miles around and the high round tower would be at home in any fairytale (it was actually the setting for a film in the 1980s). The castle was built by Lord Limerick in the 1800s as a country retreat. He entertained hunting parties from London here and the castle gained a reputation for extravagant hospitality. It was designed by Edward William Godwin, who was the most famous architect of the time.

As is the case with far too many of these historic buildings in Ireland, Dromore Castle is in a sorry state of disrepair following the removal of the roof in the 1950s. There was talk of restoration in recent years but no sign of it yet!
