Desmond castle, Cork st., Kinsale. Nov 01, 2017
Desmond castle was built around 1500 by, wouldn't you know it, the Earl of Desmond, originally as a Custom house. The castle has also served as a prison and suffered a fire in 1747, killing 50-odd prisoners. Also used as an arsenal by the Spanish prior to the "Battle of Kinsale" and as a workhouse for the ultra-poor during the Great Famine years. Declared a National Monument in 1938 and restored, it now houses an International Wine Museum since 1997.

Entrance is 5€ for an adult, with some reductions for seniors, students and children
