Most Irish castles date back from the 1100's during the Norman invasions to Ireland.
Most of these strongholds were used as administrative headquarters for the invading lords who would make many decisions in a safer environment which was a castle.
Today, many of this castles are still standing and they are used as museums, hotels or for weddings.
Nevertheless, most Irish castles were destroyed during the Dark Ages which leave us with plenty of speculation to do.
