Amazing Castles in Ireland

Among the well over 300 castles in Ireland, we were lucky enough to see a nice little handful while we were there.  Keep in mind when they say castle in Ireland, it's not always the beautiful fairy tale picture you might have imagined in your head.  While some are incredibly beautiful, many are ruins that were kept over time and just not kept up, some are being renovated, others are haunted.  They each have their own unique story that are all rich in history and some correlate to many things we believe and do today which is amazing in itself.

If I had to guess, I'd say Leap Castle.

They are all so gorgeous though!

You are correct..have you been there too?

You guessed right - so creepy, the stories...you can see one half is renovated where the other half had not really been touched. They tried and were knocked off ladders..I can't wait to feature the inside and more of the story next month for the A to Z challenge.

I was going to say Leap castle. made me think of Lovers Leap! They are all hauntingly beautiful. Great pictures.

They are each creepy in their own way but you are right - and people have leaped from the windows of that castle too..
