Tales of Irish Castles explores the great stories, legends and characters associated with the most beautiful, notorious and historical castles across Ireland. Presented by Simon Delaney and featuring castles in Dublin, Trim, Blarney, Limerick, Carrickfergus, Kilkenny, Birr and many more, the series will take the audience on an incredible journey throughout the island of Ireland. Following the Irish invasion by the Anglo-Normans in 1169, the country changed forever and over the following 700 years, over 3,000 castles emerged to dominate and permanently re-shape the Irish landscape. From the imposing Anglo-Norman strongholds of the 13th and 14th centuries, to the more modest tower houses of the 15th and 16th centuries and the lavish fortified houses of the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish castles have provided the backdrop for countless bloody battles, savage sieges, haunting happenings and lavish lifestyles over the years. Tales of Irish Castles documents these magnificent stone structures and the stories contained within their walls, bringing them to life through specially shot re-enactments, archive footage and contributions from Irelands leading historians, archaeologists, castle owners and inhabitants.
