Castle Street, Lisburn :: Shared Description


Dating from the very early 17th century and taking its name from Conway’s castle (of which the gate J2764 : The Castle gate, Lisburn (3) is possibly the best-preserved survivor), Castle Street runs from Seymour Street to Market Square. Once the main entrance to the town from Belfast, in more recent times it was badly affected by the Troubles and the associated security arrangements. The restoration of the Castle Gardens and, in 2010, the opening of the new Tech were major improvements. Some buildings (January 2011) are derelict but some are offered for sale with development potential.
