Dungarvan Castle in Co. Waterford has been restored and houses an exhibition on the history of the castle. The Castle which was built in the early 13th Century overlooks Dungarvan Harbour. It became an Infantry Barracks in the 18th Century. During the Civil War in 1922 The Republicans occupied the building. It was later used by the Garda Siochana.

The castle consists of a polygonal shell keep with an enclosing curtain wall, a corner tower and a gate tower. The shell keep is the earliest structure. Shell keeps are common in England, but rare in Ireland. Inside the curtain wall is a two storey military barracks, which is now restored and houses an informative exhibition on the history of the castle.

Access to the castle is by guided tour only. There is a guide book available in English. The Exhibition centre is fully accessible to visitors with disabilities.
