Kilkenny Castle

Kilkenny Castle has been an important site since Strongbow constructed the first castle, probably a wooden structure, in the 12th century.
William the Earl Marshall built the first stone castle on the site, which was completed in 1213. This was a square-shaped castle with towers at each corner; three of these original four towers survive to this day http://www.kilkenny.ie/eng/about_kilkenny/history/famous_landmarks/kilkenny_castle.html

It was a lovely sunny day yesterday and both of us were feeling good so off we went with our cameras to Kilkenny City for the day.

I am awestruck by the wonderful castles in Eurpoe and especially in Ireland.
Wonderful architecture and amazing that 3 of the towers have survived so long. Always love it when there is a fountain on the grounds... they give such charm..
Well captured and presented...
Should be seen in the original size.
outstanding...
