Description

This is a comprehensive guide to castles, fortified houses, bawns and town defences of the eastern and south-eastern parts of Ireland which make up the province of Leinster.

An introduction describing the development of castellated buildings of stone in Leinster, dating from the late 12th Century to the mid 17th Century, is followed by twelve gazetteers describing the history and architecture of over 350 such buildings in the counties of Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wexford and Wicklow.

The Castles of Leinster is illustrated with many plans, drawings and photographs, and there is also a map of surviving buildings. Lists at the ends of the gazetteers give summary information on another 300 buildings, and there are lists of sites of former castles.
