Product Details
This 4th program in the �Discoveries� Ireland� series explores many of this island�s historic gems. There are so many heritage sites in Ireland that you�d probably need a lifetime just to scratch the surface of it�s spectacular history. Ireland�s turbulent past gave rise to many castles, abbeys, moats & fortified houses scattered throughout the country & truly paved the way for the island�s optimistic present & future. From world heritage ruins & passage tombs like Knowth, Dowth & Newgrange all built around 3000 B.C. To the Hill of Tara which was the seat of high kings in Ireland. �To Medieval ecclesiastical castles like the Rock of Cashel & defensive fortresses like James Fort & the star fort of Charles Fort. There are ancient remnants like Mollough, Knock Graffen & Hore Abbeys some of which may be out in the middle of a farmer�s field, completely unguarded and open to anyone passing by to explore. �There�s Blarney Castle with its famous Stone of Eloquence, Trim Castle which is the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland and where the movie �Braveheart� was filmed, Dunluce Castle with it�s spectacular perch on the cliffs of the North Antrim coast and also beautifully restored Kilkenny Castle. �There are even castle hotels, some of which are owned by original families, that open their ancestral homes to the public by offering fine accommodations, restaurants, golf & other activities as in Waterford & Markree Castles.
