Kilkenny Castle, Kilkenny County, Leinster
One of the most instantly recognised buildings in Ireland, first built in 1213, Kilkenny Castle in Kilkenny was bought by and made the home of the Butler family, formerly named FitzWalter.
It was sold to the local Castle Restoration Committee in the middle of the 20th century for £50, and then handed over to the State, and it has since been refurbished and opened to visitors.
The Butler Gallery, in the castle basement, holds rotating exhibitions put on by the Kilkenny Art Gallery Society in a venue named for Peggy and Hubert Butler.
