Castle Carbury, near to the town of Edenberry, in County Kildare, Ireland. The castle is situated on Carbury Hill and had extensive views across the county. The castle, which stands on the site of an earlier motte and bailey castle was built in the late 16th century. It is a typical tower house- a single, multi storied rectangular building, with various annexes containing staircases and latrines. As can be seen from this picture, the castle walls were very substancial and were between 1.8 and 2.1 metres thick.
