In Ireland, I enjoyed two different castles. One was Powscourt, which was chosen as the world's top ten Mansions by Lonely Planet. It was a private castle estate. Besides the mountains, there was a big waterfall. It was a paradise for human beings. The other is Dublin Castle, where Ireland's presidents took office. There are many treasures and rare building materials, but the most worthwhile reason is that there are so few people and so many pink boy sculptures outside the castle.
Dublin Castle was originally built under the orders of King John in 1204. It was settled by the Vikings. They ordered the construction of a castle, with strong walls and good ditches to protect the city's justice and the king's treasures. Thus, it formed such a magnificent castle.
Dublin Castle is the symbol of Ireland, but much smaller than Edinburgh Castle. The whole building is very simple in shape, small in interior structure, which can be called exquisite. In fact, it is a museum, which collects many famous paintings and tells the history of Ireland silently. Here you can get a deep understanding of the history of the Irish Royal family, which is of great significance.
Dublin Castle is an important place for the life, work and foreign affairs of ancient Irish kings. The living room is tall and spacious. It has the style of the King's family. Notice that I don't say the Royal style. Photographs are not allowed here, but I am not polite to see Western tourists posing as if nothing had happened. Tickets are divided into self-service tour and tour guide, self-service tour is 5 euros, tour guide is about 8 euros.
Because in maintenance, did not go in to see. It's beautiful outside.
Irish dwarf! The image existed long before Celtic culture arrived in Ireland. Clover and green cap were the sculpture standard. Their abilities included making shoes and illusioning gold coins. They were bright in the bitter and dark Irish culture. Ireland also has an interesting paperwork game: cut the 12 dwarfs into three pieces and then put them together again. The dwarfs will become 13.
