We came upon Cahir Castle in October, just as the trees were starting to change colour.
The moat surrounding the castle.A colourful engraving of Cahir Castle when it was at its peak.One of the more vicious gates at the castle. Imagine this coming down on your head!A series of pulleys to bring the gate up and down.A different entryway. Ancient interior decoration. A view through a leaded glass window.
A different view, this to the park surrounding the castle with the church off in the distance. A park area surrounded the castle, part of it semi-wild with a stream running through it.The weir.A bit of wild.One section of the park contained many wood sculptures in amongst its manicured lawns.
