    Aughnanure Castle

    August 19, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Een pittoresk kasteel in een prachtige locatie.
    Als we aankomen giet hij pijpenstelen, goed aankleden en tegen we 20m verder zijn houd het op en komt de zon erdoor. In het bos verscholen is de ingang van het kasteel, heel mooi en goed onderhouden is het binnenin. Overal wit gekalkt wat wel onze smaak is en blijkbaar was het overal zo in de burchten in die tijd. We wandelen helemaal tot boven en genieten van het kasteel.Read more

    Aughnanure Castle

    June 29, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    Just outside Oughterard, we made our last sightseeing stop of the day at Aughnanure Castle. Dating back to around 1500, the castle’s name means “the field of the yew trees.” I have no idea if the trees that surrounded the property were yews or not, but there sure were a lot of them.

    What made this castle different was the ruins of the round watchtowers ... one on the perimeter wall and another one on what would have been the inner defensive wall.

    Since we had time to spare, we wandered up into the tower house for a quick look-see. As has been the case with all of the tower houses we’ve visited so far, there was nothing much to see here, but the view from the banqueting hall made climbing the narrow, circular staircase worthwhile.
