Dromore Castle:  Does it Look Familiar? You May Have Seen It Before!

Dromore Castle can be found in the County Limerick, in the province of Munster. This castle is a good journey from Dublin Airport, but you should be able to make the drive in under three hours. 


The route from Dublin follows the M7 to Limerick, and the N69 out of Limerick toward Askeaton and Dromore Castle.     

Things to Know About Dromore Castle

Built in the Gothic Revival style in the early 19th century, Dromore Castle is an iconic landmark in County Limerick.

The castle was originally built for the Earl of Limerick.  It was abandoned during World War I and began to slip into ruin.

In the 1980s the castle was featured in the movie comedy “High Spirits,” directed by Neil Jordan.

Until 1993, Dromore castle remained in the hands of his heirs, although it now belongs to a private investment company.  We hear there are plans to restore it to its original splendor.
