Nenagh Castle is an Irish castle, located in the village of Nenagh in County Tipperary. Built around 1200 by Theobald Walter the building is in the form of a large crenellated round tower overlooking the rest of the town. Majestic, the castle has been magnificently preserved after the centuries, despite the disappearance of its defensive walls. A nice place to discover if you pass by.
Passing through Nenagh? You will not be able to miss its castle: omnipresent, it seems to silently watch over the Irish city. Built out of limestone blocks, it takes the form of a round tower, whose walls have disappeared (some remains still exist, but are anecdotal).
The dimensions of the tower are impressive: 30 meters high and 15 meters in diameter. It has 4 floors with stone staircases of 101 steps.
The tower has been completely renovated to make it the first tourist place of the city. We appreciate its charm, as well as its restoration carried out in the pure historical respect. Not forgetting the fact that its visit is free…
You can explore the main rooms of the tower: you will discover magnificent rooms, a spiral staircase… The whole is bathed in a fascinating atmosphere, where you can rediscover the Irish medieval history, the great episodes of the city of Nenagh, as well as the art of living of the time, with its decoration and furniture.
However, we prefer to warn you: the hundred or so steps of the staircase require a bit of breath and stamina. But don’t hesitate to persevere: the reward is at the end of the path, with an incredible view of the village and the Irish nature of Tipperary. To be immortalized with a few photos, and off we go again towards new adventures!
from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10.00 to 13.00 and from 14.00 to 16.30 (please note the winter timetable as the castle is only accessible in the afternoon).
