Welcome (Fáilte) to Irish Castles. Our team has been visiting Irish castles, fortified houses, tower houses and other antiquities both medieval and post medieval since 1998.
During the 6 years of field work (1998 - 2004) we were supported by a number of people from both officialdom and the general population of Ireland. It is with fondness and gratitude that they earn a position of thanks in the opening screen of this web site
Here, you will learn about our research, as well as the people involved in the project.
If you have comments or questions about our experiences or the intended products from this endeavour, or simply need more information and wish to contact us, click on the (contact us) button on any page.
Thank you for visiting and we look forward to this web site evolving into a great source of information on Irish Castles.
Particular thanks go to the following archaeologists:
David Sweetman, Eamon Cody, Brian Duffy, Caimin O’Brien, Denis Power, Paul Walsh
Ken Neill, Terence Reeves-Smyth
