View of Naul Castle in Ireland. It is said that there are more castles in Ireland than in England, Scotland and Wales together, however many of the Irish castles were actually tower houses and are more acurately described as defended residences. Naul is a small village in West Finegal, County Dublin, and its name is derived from the Gaelic ‘In aill’ which translates as ‘The rock’ or ‘cliff’ and the rocky precipice on which the castle sits gave its name to the locality. The castle is a large square, grey stone building and it was been suggested that it was built in the 12th century by the Norman family of De Grenneville.
