Black Castle : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Maurice Fitzgerald built the castle in 1176 on a rocky promontory, directly south of the harbour. The region was granted to Fitzgerald after the 12C Anglo-Norman invasion. Until the 16C, Black Castle was subject to frequent attacks by local clansmen, the O'Byrnes and the O'Tooles. The ruins form a fine vantage point for views over the city and the coast of north County Wicklow.
