To visit historic O'Dea Castle, make your way to Munster Province, and County Clare. Whether you want to cycle around the castle or visit the archeology center, you can get there from the Dublin Airport in under three hours.
Stay on the M1, and be prepared for the road name to switch to the A1 when you cross over the border to Northern Ireland. When you hit the coast, you'll know you've arrive at Dunluce Castle on the aptly named Dunluce Road.
The Dysert O’Dea Castle, sometimes just referred to as the O'Dea Castle, is found in County Clare.
Built at the end of the 15th century, the castle is a rectangular tower that stands at a tall five stories high.
In 1970, an American purchased the castle, restored it, and reopened it as a museum and archeology center.
It's also the start of a historic walking and cycling trail that lets you spot battlefields, forts and other monuments in the area.
