Dublin Castle by kh92

Located off Dame St in Central Dublin, the Dublin Castle is an Irish government complex comprised of a number of buildings that have been somewhat haphazardly arranged together over the ages. Originally built as a defensive fortification for the Norman city of Dublin, it later evolved into an official residence, used by the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland or Viceroy of Ireland, the representative of the Monarch. Elements such as part of the Bermingham Tower still stand and were part of the original 1100s castle. The Record Tower is from the 1200s and stands adjacent to the Chapel Royal, a beautiful early 1800s construction. (Dublin, Ireland)
