Robswall Castle, Malahide, Co. Dublin
Robswall Castle, Malahide, Co. Dublin
This tower house was once occupied by the Cistercian Monks of St. Mary's Abbey, Dublin and all fishing boats entering the harbour of Malahide gave a donation of fish to the monks. They also benefited from ship-wrecks. When the monasteries were suppressed by Henry VIII, he granted Robswalls to his Solicitor-General for Ireland, Patrick Barnewell C.1540. At one time it had its own small harbour hewn out of the rocks underneath and had a three-storied circular staircase. It is minus a storey to-day.
