Blackrock Castle is a castellated fortification on the banks of the River Lee. Originally developed as a coastal defence fortification in the 16th century to protect upper Cork Harbour, the site now houses an observatory, visitor centre and restaurant.

Thanks Nora. It looked a little bit like a building from Disneyworld, but it was a true castle from the 16th century....
