Bedford Tower, D2Dublin Castle
Dublin Castle fulfilled a number of roles through its history. Originally built as a defensive fortification for the Norman city of Dublin, Dublin Castle later evolved into a royal residence.
The Bedford Tower (part of Dublin Castle) was built in 1760 and houses the Chief State Solicitor's Office and the Genealogical Office. It was fortified by the British until 1922 and is now a major Irish government complex.
The Tower was built over the original twin-towered entrance into Dublin Castle which was equipped with a portcullis and drawbridge and also served as a prison. It was from here that the Irish Crown Jewels were mysteriously stolen in 1907 and have never been recovered since.
The building later housed the Genealogical Office which has now been relocated to Kildare Street.
The balcony was often occupied in the British days by army bands playing for military and social occasions.
