  • Desmond Castle is actually a tower house located in the town of Kinsale, Cork.

    The castle was originally built as a Customs House in the early 1500s. In 1641 it was no longer a customs house and got converted into a naval prison, in the mid-1700’s after a big fire killing many prisoners it was turned into a gaol, then during the Irish Famine, it was re-purposed as a workhouse.

    Since 1997, Desmond Castle has housed the International Museum of Wine, this exhibition tells the fascinating story of Ireland’s wine links with Europe and the wider world.

    The castle is open end of <March to mid-September.
