|Drimnagh medieval Irish castle is located on the Long Mile Road, near Walkinstown in south Dublin city. Now surrounded by 21st Century suburbia, the original building dates from the 13th century. Drimnagh castle was constructed as a residence for the Anglo-Norman Barnewall family.|
Occupied continuously up to 1954, the castle was presented by its then owners - the Hatch family, to the Christian Brothers who established a school nearby. A major restoration project was undertaken with local volunteers & government assistance through the FAS training agency. Financing was provided by private donations & European Community funds. Many of the medieval castle's original interior and exterior features including the 17th century gardens have since been restored.
