Rathfarnham Castle

  Rathfarnham, Dublin 14      (+353) (0)1 493 9462     more than a year ago
The toys are back in town! Classically associated with architecture and a fine collection of family portraits, this magnificent building, c.8km south of Dublin city centre, now houses the Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection. Made up of 18th and 19th Century toys, dolls and costumes, the collection tells a social history of its own and breathes life into the Castle's grand interiors.

This splendorous 18th Century building dates back to the Elizabethan period and was built to protect Dublin from attack from Wicklow clans. Immerse yourself in its rich history and, if the toys aren't enough to keep the little ones occupied, head for the playground in the Castle grounds, then refuel at the Stuart and Chambers Tearooms.
